Slowplay CD


A collection of some of the most popular session tunes in the celtic repertoire, all played at a slow to moderate tempo               

A great tool for the musician new to celtic music or for the listener to experience the tunes played in a more relaxed manner than the usual breakneck tempo of a celtic session

Special thanks goes out to
Del Eckels and Peter Thomas
