Welcome to The Ontario Traditional Music Library. Please take a few minutes and browse. We've got our initial entries uploaded, and will be adding more on a regular basis. Each entry includes some or all of the following elements: Sheet music, MIDI files, abc notations, Background information on the music, Photos or illustrations, Links to recorded music samples, Links to performances on Youtube.
The sheet music is in the form of JPGs. To print them just save them to your own computer first.
We just uploaded a delightful couple of dozen tunes from the Ash and Buttrey Manuscripts played on fiddle by Saskia Tomkins. We also have sound files of other pieces from Teilhard Frost, Shane Cook, Anne Lederman, Ian Robb, Muddy York, Ian Bell and even Oliver Schroer! Thanks to Will Macaulay we a abc notions for some of the Allan Ash tunes.
SEARCH BY SUBJECT OR COLLECTION Click the main subject headings towards the bottom of the page (where the little pictures are) OR Select from the dropdown subject menu and click "Search Library". Note: there are more different subjects on this list than on the page
SEARCH BY ERA OR LOCALE Pick from the dropdown menus and click "Search Library" Note: "Era" is generally intended to suggest the era of a song or tune's initial creation. HOWEVER - It sometimes refers to the date the song or tune was recorded. (I've tried to indicate in the notes of each entry which of those it is)
SEARCH BY TITLE OR KEYWORD Type title or keyword into box and click "Search Library" All titles are entered without the word "The" at the beginning
Finally - FYI, A "Camboose" is a lumbermen's bunk house. Everyone's been asking
