"The Professor, James Morrison"

Presented by his former student, Veronica McNamara, The Original Hand Written Manuscripts For Irish Fiddle

Produced by Veronica McNamara & Iris Nevins

154 handwritten pages of tunes, to make a total of 148 tunes (some run into several pages), all in the handwriting of the legendary fiddler, James Morrison, also showing bowing directions and other notations in this facsimile edition. There are shown six composition books belonging to the late Joey Flynn and his sisters Kathleen Massar and Marion Flynn Lynch. Veronica herself was also a student, but her books were lost. These are nearly identical to those books she had. Every week, as she would go to her fiddle lesson with "the Professor" he would write in pencil, another tune in her book. Here we have preserved these important historical manuscripts for the enjoyment and education of Irish fiddlers and other Irish musicians everywhere. As one person put it when he first saw the book,

"It's like James Morrison is alive again!"

and another who received it said:

"Thank you so much, it is a beautifully made book and feels like the master is still talking through these pages."
