For Champtrax, I arranged traditional Irish music at the length and speeds for An Coimisiun champion-level competitive feis dancers. The format is designed so that dancers can practice their steps up to three times with no breaks, with a new tune at the end of each time through, and still have a definite ending. It is also useful for practice where up to three groups of dancers would start in succession after the previous group is finished their steps. Tracks 13 through 16 are longer and suitable for class practice, though the championship-length tunes 3 times through are also long enough for that purpose. Most of the tunes on Champtrax are in the typical Irish session players' repertoires, played in styles reminiscent of older Irish bands like The Bothy Band, De Danann, The Chieftains, Planxty, and Altan. Some unique items include finger-picked guitar lead on a trio of O'Carolan tunes for treble jigs, harmonies, and multiple instruments on tunes, such as three fiddles, two guitars, three mandolins, etc. Thanks to Matt McMasters of McMasters Photography (McMastersphotography.com) for pictures, CD design, and digital Botox!
