A book of the dance tunes on this CD is also available. A River of Whisky contains dances suitable for the CD and a further 51 tunes composed by Angus.
A River of Whisky
Tunes and dances popular in Northern Tasmania
This book contains all the tunes played on the CD Possums on the Roof plus a further 51 tunes written by Angus Cameron. Angus and Betty Cameron moved from Scotland to Tasmania over 50 years ago. They brought with them a rich tradition of Scottish dance and music which they adapted for the Northern Tasmanian Bush Dances with Betty calling and Angus playing the fiddle and piano accordion. Angus remembered many tunes played by his family in his native Ayreshire.
Angus regularly composed tunes. Many of these were lost as he doesn't read music. As locals started playing his tunes they gradually began to be written down.
His tunes are now being played by the Tassie Tattie Howkers and a CD is available. This book also contains instruction for the 10 dances taken from the CD.
Book size A4, contains over 200 tunes, chords and history.

Begged Borrowed and Stolen
For years Begged Borrowed and Stolen has been the most commonly used music book in Australia for session tunes. This book is recommended as the starting point for musicians new to Celtic music.
now available on 3 CDs to assist with the learning of tunes. Each
tune in the Book is played twice at about three quarter
pace. Ear players will benefit from the clarity of the recording in picking out
the tunes while those able to read music will be able to play along with the
musicians to assist with rhythm and timing.
The recordings come in a sleeve that can be fixed to the inside of the book. Included is a list of chord and melody variations.
This fourth CD has been added to
the very popular series by requests as players have been wanting to hear the
tunes played at dance speed. Ian McLeod, Leueen Morgan and Mike Watts have
been joined by Luke Plumb of Shooglenifty, Tim Gleeson, Music Under the
Mountains tutors Patrick Lyons, Nicola Fortune, Tasmanian fiddler Angus Cameron
and a number of happy talented students from the School.
The Sets can be used for dances and a list of suitable dances has been provided for each track.
You may purchase the CD separately or with the kits above. It is designed to go into the spare CD holder with the other three CDs originally recorded.
We are now offering all 4 CDs for the price of three.
We also have been offered a set of cues to be able to start the tune easily in a session etc. Thanks to Summer School whistle student Frank Basten for putting both these items together and offering them as a gift to readers of BB&S
