Junior Seisiún - Tune List

This is the list of tunes that we are playing in our seisiúns. They represent a good cross-section of the music that you would find at any seisiún in the San Francisco Bay area. Tunes that we are currently playing are indicated with an asterisk.

Clicking on the title will play the midi, and clicking on the PDF or ABC links will load their respective files for the entire sub-group.

These tunes have been collected from a number of different sources including Michael Long's seisiún tune book, John Chamber's web site, The Pub Scouts, and may other internet and local sources. As with all ITM, these arrangements may differ slightly from what you may have learned.

The ABC software that I use for transcription, midi conversion, and playpack is AbcMus1.1 by Henrik Norbeck. It can be downloaded from here.

This list was last updated on 26 April, 2001

The midi, pdf, and abc files have been updated. I will post the new gif files as soon as I can.

If anyone finds errors in the tunes, PLEASE let me know.
