Easy Irish Folk Song arrangements for Double Bass and Piano

Introducing the album, Enchanted Isle for Double Bass!

Enchanted Isle

Is a suite of Irish folk songs in special, easy-to-play arrangements for Double Bass with piano accompaniment. The twelve songs cover a range of moods, some lyrical and romantic. While few are sad, many are happy and all are catchy, but the set ends with high comedy in the song, Mister Grumguffenhoff! This is a real showpiece finale that includes pizzicato effects.

Did I say twelve? Look out for number five in the set, while this titled The Minstrel Boy, it ends with the song, Garryowen. Perhaps this title is less familiar, but you will recognise the tune instantly. It is in many Hollywood US civil war movies and also in several other films. Order your copy from UMP Ltd.
