Fiddler Magazine Review:
'Sean Kenan's "Irish Fiddle Music: Two Fiddles" is a useful book for the beginner/intermediate player who has some ability to read, and wishes to play with a friend in something other than the usual purely melody focused manner. Most of the pieces are arranged in octaves which is a technique found both in Kerry and especially in Donegal style playing. If one wants to build up the skill to play in octaves, this is a good place to start. There are harmonies written for some of the pieces, and some of those are quite lovely and unusual. Kenan also includes tips on ornamentation, which beginning players could find quite useful.The book is well laid out and easy to read. It contains seventy three interesting and accessible jigs, reels, hornpipes, slides, polkas and airs, including a few gems which, though from non-Irish sources, one might hear played at a good Irish session.'
