Richard Robinson's Tunebook
This is a collection of traditional tunes from Ireland, England,
Scotland and the Northern Isles, Scandinavia and further afield :-
jigs and reels, polskas and schottisches, waltzes, bourrees,
horos and more. You can see the tunes listed :-
Please read the copyright notice. Also there is
a bit of blurb with the story of what it's about.
Each list contains the same information in different orders -
a line of text for each tune, and a link to a gif file with a
picture of the notation for that tune.
These are in b&w, at a resolution suitable for
convenient viewing on screen (75 dpi), and consequently pretty
small as images go (around 5k each, on average), so they should load
This is being served by W3 servers with which I have no connection,
apart from making this collection available to them. Thus, any comments
concerning the collection should please be addressed to me,
where I would welcome comments, suggestions, and any other form
of constructive feedback.
Technical questions concerning access to the W3 server, etc, should please
be addressed to the relevant site.

- Musical :- To all the people I've learnt tunes from, all the
people I've played with, all the people who've given me transcriptions ...
I've tried to write lists but it's hopeless. If we've ever had
a tune together, thank you.
- Electronic :- To
Peter J. Nix
for the original suggestion, plus encouragement and discussion along
the way, to Leeds university, the Ceolas archive, and Demon Internet for
its' online homes, and to those people who have already looked at it
and given helpful suggestions, corrections, encouragement, etc
