Welcome to Steve's music pages

This site was created to for the new musicians that join in the traditional Irish sessions held every Sunday afternoon at McGinty's Irish Bar, Cairns Australia, so they can easily get hold of the sheet music for the tunes and sets we commonly play. I have arranged the pages into individual tunes, common sets, and some songs. The tunes and sets can be downloaded as either .abc, .pdf, or .mid formats while the song sheets are in PDF, ChordPro, OpenSong, and standard two-line text formats.

Other formats such as TAB for your particular instrument, MusicXML, ChordPro, or MP3 are available for individual tunes on request.

Note that this site will pretty much always be a work in progress and new tunes will be added from time to time. If you would like to receive email notices about new additions to this site, send me a message. I will only send out updates once a week at the most.

If there is a tune that you think should be listed here but is missing please contact me. Comments and suggestions are also welcome.
