Fiddle Tunes for Marimba is a collection of old-time American, Scottish, Irish, and English fiddle tunes transcribed for two-mallet marimba or xylophone with four-mallet marimba accompaniment. The fiddle tunes included in the collection were selected to introduce percussionists and mallet players to the rich traditions of American and European folk-dance music. The challenging two-mallet tune melodies work well as technical studies that are fun to play.

The following fiddle tunes are included in this volume:

  • Arkansas Traveler
  • Billy in the Lowground
  • Blackberry Blossom
  • Bonaparte Crossing the Rocky Mountains
  • Chicken Reel
  • Devil’s Dream
  • East Tennessee Blues
  • Garry Owen
  • Hills of Glenorchy
  • Irish Washerwoman
  • June Apple
  • Liberty
  • Maggie Brown’s Favorite
  • Mary Walker
  • Red Haired Boy
  • Sailor’s Hornpipe
  • Salt Creek
  • Sligo Maid
  • Soldier’s Joy
  • Stronsay Waltz
  • Swallow Tail Jig
  • Whiskey before Breakfast

These 22 tunes are accessible, fun, and functional. . . . This would be a great addition to the library of a private-lesson instructor or band director to be used as sight reading, fun and easy duet material, or as an end-of-the section playing test.
