notation and music.
- To quote Tom
Keays in his FAQ (see above): "This site is run by Paul Schwartz as a information service to the worldwide concertina community. Paul's love is for the Anglo concertina (and Irish music) but the site is democratic and includes just about any kind of concertina and music. It includes a very active discussion forum, a buy and sell board, an abc music database, tutorials and references to instruction materials, and an extensive set of links."
The Tune-O-Tron has more than 600 tunes, many of them Morris
tunes, available in MIDI, abc, PDF, and sheet music format.

Developed and maintained by the Traditional Drama Research Group
at the University of Sheffield.

magazine. The masthead says it all: The Magazine for Traditional
Music Throughout the World. Wonderful articles, stuff to buy, and
a model for all online magazines.
