The Fiddler Series - Edward Huws Jones series

A love of folk and traditional music led Edward to compile "Jigs, Reels and Hornpipes" (Boosey & Hawkes) in 1992. The success of this publication has led to a best selling series of publications including Jazz, Blues and Ragtime, The American Fiddler, The Gypsy Fiddler and The Klezmer Fiddler.

Favourite jazz arrangements
Violin and Piano (or 2 violins, or violin and guitar)

Most violinists long to play jazz - and then get left on the sidelines as the clarinets, trumpets or guitars boogie away. Yet the violin has always had a role in jazz, with its own virtuoso exponents like Joe Venuti, Stuff Smith and Stephane Grappelli.

This collection of jazz, blues and ragtime standards includes some favourite melodies like "Take Five", "The Entertainer", "House of the Rising Sun" and "Makin' Whoopee" arranged for violin. A flexible format and extra optional parts makes these ideal for solos, duets, or a larger folk band.

The full range of traditional fiddle repertoire is now at your fingertips! Using these generous collections, you can create your own ceilidh, barn dance, jazz club, Sarajevo street-café or Gypsy gathering. Some of this music is familiar, some more exotic, but all of it is absolutely authentic, faithfully arranged and, above all, hugely enjoyable.

Each title in the series is available in two formats: the violin edition (with an optional easy violin part and guitar chord); or the complete edition, which also includes both keyboard and violin accompaniments. Either format is hugely flexible, which means the music can be played as solos, duets or trios as well as with larger ensembles.

Edward Huws Jones has travelled extensively researching fiddle-playing traditions. In each book he explains the background of the particular musical style, giving his own suggestions for a lively performance. And to help recreate the spirit of the music, every book in the series is beautifully illustrated.
