The arrangements in Folk in Harmony were made at the suggestion of David Burleigh who thought that it might help some beginning pipers to play with a piano accompaniment to "keep them going". The tunes in Book 1 are some that a new player might expect to manage in their first year.
There is a certain amount of crossover of tunes with books 1 and 2 of The Piper's Companion - but the difference here is the piano accompaniments.
The books come with two inserts - the first is in a key for the pipes (everything, in fact, is in G) while the second is transposed for other instruments such as flute, recorder, violin, etc.
The inserts include optional seconds (which do not appear in the piano book).
