Folk tune finder is a search engine for folk tunes in ABC notation.
It is run by Joe Wass. You can contact joe@folktunefinder.com with any questions or comments. I love hearing from people who use the site and feedback is always welcome.
All tunes on this site were found somewhere on the web and transcribed by someone, somewhere.
