Irish music is played all over the world, but it's difficult to know what tunes to learn because they can vary from one session to another. In this collection I have tried to compile a list of "standard" Irish tunes: reels, jigs, etc, which are at least known by many who play in Irish sessions. It should give you the start of a repertoire which will stand you in good stead.
