Full Scores

Note on the tempos: 120 BPM is my default speed
but initially slower while we learn the tunes.
Airs like Many Strings to his Bow and
Mist in the Valley will be more like 90 BPM.
Scolding Wife & Jolly Mortals will vary
from 75 to 90 BPM
Jill Ireland's Jig will probably accelerate to end.

Videos from 2014 and 2016 are on YouTube
