On this site you will find a collection of short videos demonstrating tunes commonly played in San Diego and Los Angeles Irish sessions. Each tune is played once up to speed and then once slowly.

If the site is useful to you, or you would like to request a video for a specific tune, please consider making a small contribution to the site via the PayPal donation box on the right. Your donations support the hosting of the site as well as production costs and are greatly appreciated.

The tunes are organized by instrument


Traditional Scottish/Irish Bagpipes, Flutes, and Whistles

All of my wind instrument apps feature high-quality individual note audio samples of fine instruments so they sound incredibly authentic!


Piano, Chromatic, and Diatonic Button Accordions

All of my accordion apps feature high-quality individual key and button audio samples from my own instruments so they sound incredibly realistic!


My hammered dulcimer apps use high quality, per-note, perfectly in-tune audio samples from very fine instruments, so they sound and play exactly like the real thing.


Anglo, English, and Duet Concertinas

All of my concertina apps feature high-quality individual button audio samples from my own vintage instruments so they sound incredibly realistic!
