The table below contains links to sheet music, midi files and mp3 files of the 6 sets arranged for the 2018 National Folk Festival Fiddle Rally to be held over Easter 2018 in Canberra. The files are provided for musicians who are interested in playing in this annual fiddle rally so that the music is familiar before arriving in Canberra at Easter.

As usual there will be 3 practises before the final performance which will take place on the Monday evening at the opening of the final concert.

Every effort has been made to find the original composer of the tunes and to provide source and reference material for the tunes. Both midi files and mp3s are provided at expected speed and a slow version for practise.
