The Traditional Tune Archive (formerly known as "The Fiddler's Companion") is a massive Wiki of information on the North American, British, and Irish instrumental music that has become the mainstay of fiddling repertoires across the United States. From the jam session staple to the obscure, this collection contains information on over 53,000 titles, including:

  • historical background
  • form, meter, and musical key
  • alternate titles
  • notated music (and source)
  • recordings
