Review:

A thorough, well thought-out overview of what makes up the basics of the traditional Irish melodic style. This is much more than a tune book: Liz both explains and shows very clearly how to adapt the melodies and stylistic elements to the cello. This is a great book for any cellist who wants to become proficient in playing Irish tunes! --Natalie Haas, traditional cellist (with Alasdair Fraser, Mark O Connor's Appalachia Waltz Trio, Laura Cortese Acoustic Project, Brittany Haas & Dan Trueman)

I'mm very excited about Liz's book, and I wish that there were more books like this for the cello! It features clear explanations of what makes Irish music Irish, as well as how to best adapt it for our instrument. With a mixture of chapters focusing on physical techniques, and discussions on more subjective stylistic issues, this book also goes the extra step to address skills and techniques necessary to simply get better at learning by ear. By connecting its comprehensive content to the real world, outside of its covers, this book will soon be seen as the definitive classic for cellists looking to play Irish music in an authentic and meaningful way. --Mike Block (Multi-style cellist and director of Mike Block String Camps)

The Irish Cello Book does the impossible: while explaining the technical aspects of Irish music, it also escorts the reader into a community of established players where the expressive, feeling part of this important music is most alive. Players with classical backgrounds will appreciate the thoughtful, comparative analysis from a technical perspective, while everyone will benefit from the creativity, imagination, and respect for tradition conveyed here. --Eugene Friesen (Grammy® award-winning cellist and director of the Berklee World Strings)
