As a performer, having enough music is essential!  In the last 2 offerings I sent you 2 Scottish 15 minute sets.  Today I am going to share with you my Irish Set.  There might be tunes that aren’t totally Irish, however I have found that they fit with the other tunes in the set.  The average listener though isn’t necessarily going to be able to tell the difference.  So here goes:


4/4 Marches

  • The Minstrel Boy
  • The Wearing of the Green
  • Let Erin Remember

6/8 Marches

  • Garry Owen
  • Back to Donegal
  • Mrs. Lilly Christie

2/4 Marches

  • Twenty Men From Dublin Town
  • All the Way to Galway


  • Orange and Blue
  • The Braes of Mar


  • The Piper of Drummond
  • Sandy Duff


  • Paddy O’Rafferty


  • Tam Bains Lum


  • Torosay Castle


I hope you all enjoy these sets.  If you have any questions, please feel free to respond.  These books are great places to start building your repertoire:
