Voyager Repertoire Builder Series

These are special materials to help fiddlers, other lead players, and backup players add tunes to their repertoire. These releases presently are available only directly from Voyager since production runs are limited. Unless otherwise noted, all Repertoire Builder Series releases consist of a CD of the tunes in a sleeve, music for the tunes professionally set in standard music notation, and chord charts for accompaniment, all punched for a standard 3-ring binder, packaged in a plastic ziplock bag. Unless otherwise noted, all Repertoire Builder packets are $15.00.
