Archive of music for the
Vermont Fiddle Orchestra


since Fall 2019

Each section below contains the music for one VFO season, starting in Fall 2019 at the bottom of the page.
The left column provides links to PDFs of lead sheets (melody & chords).
The middle column similarly provides harmony parts.
The right column plays a recording of the tune.
If two recordings, the upper emphasises melody, the lower harmony.
Below the main entries is a list of tunes played more slowly to assist learning.

The recordings are very much home recordings and are not studio-quality, so it would be appreciated if they were used only in the VFO context. Thanks for understanding.
