The first 25 tunes (pages 6-28( are played by Gerry O'Connor, whose creative arid individual style has earned him the reputation of being one of Ireland's finest banjo players. The remaining tunes (pages 29-48( are arranged and played by David McNevin, an extremely skillful player in the traditional style, who has received major awards for his achievements on the banjo. As David McNevin's solos are arranged for traditional tuning, the tablature may also be used for the mandolin.
