From the Preface:
      This collection spans three centuries of music-making in five countries: from the blind barbaric harpists of the eighteenth century to the international touring performers of the present day. Within national styles, there are many regional styles. The Donegal style, to draw from my own locality, can be more deeply understood as a multiplicity of rich local styles. In addition to this, there are multiple sub-genres at play. Of course also, within these, you have a rich tapestry of personal styles: icons whose voices have inspired generations and shaped the identity of whole traditions. As with the masters of the Western art music tradition, studying the legends of Celtic music is a lifetime's work. 
      There is no one 'correct' way to play each of the pieces presented here and traditional musicians themselves will constantly employ variation to make each tune their own; rarely playing a melody the same way twice. Therefore, what I really hope is that this colleciton will inspire you to look a little further. While I have selected pieces that have inspired me and have often been the soundtrack to wonderful experiences in these Celtic areas, this book is really an invitation to you, the reader, to embark upon your own journey. Seek out the people, go to the places, listen to the records and view what can be viewed online. There are communities of people who are actively on the same path; get out to the numerous festivals, sessions and gatherings all around the world and meet them. This is where the heart of this living tradition lies and it is there for everyone.
I wish you well,
Martin Tourish, November 2017
