The Slowplayers website also includes an impressive list of tunes in different formats.

Irish Music Web Sites

CEOLAS - In my opinion - one of the best sources for learning all you want to know about Irish music.Unfortunately, it hasn't been updated for a while so many of the links are not valid.

Scoiltrad - For many Irish music players around the world it is a dream come true! "It is the first truly interactive online music school. Founded by well-known Irish Traditional musicians Conal Ó'Gráda (Flute), Eoin O'Riabhaigh (Uilleann Pipes) and Kevin Glackin (Fiddle), Scoiltrad provides music classes for all musical abilities, from beginner through advanced. Classes are in the form of multimedia modules with fully integrated Audio / Video, Text, Notation and Finger Charts. Once the student has taken a class, they can e-mail an MP3 file of their own playing to Scoiltrad where the tutor will respond with feedback and guidance."
