Tunes 2001 Tunes 2001: 65 tunes from Laura Risk
Two CDs containing 65 well-known tunes from Scotland, Cape Breton, Ireland, Quebec, and New England: Reels, jigs, strathspeys, marches and airs, plus an A for tuning. I play every tune fast and then slow (except the airs, since they're already slow!). I recorded it in my living room but the sound quality is pretty good, and it's right at pitch. For a list of the tunes, see the extended liner notes.
