The Northern Fiddler

These tunes have been transcribed as closely as possible from:

  • The Northern Fiddler – Music and Musicians of Donegal and Tyrone:
    • Allen Feldman & Eamonn O’Doherty

This page is very much a “Work in Progress” and tunes will be added from time to time. If you want to help, pick a tune that hasn’t been transcribed, write out the ABC using editABC and send your output to the address at the bottom of the page!
