By purchasing tunes and tune collections from this website you are supporting the continuation of slowplayers.org. This means that you are ensuring that the site will stay online, the existing information and tunes will be regularly updated, and more tunes and information will be added. Of course, you can continue to play the tunes online here without purchasing anything, ever. This is not primarily a profit-making venture, but it does require a fair amount of time and energy to make sure it remains useful. My aim with this site is to provide tools for learning Irish traditional music (ITM) for those interested in joining or creating sessions in their area, tools which I believe are invaluable to players wishing to gain confidence with various aspects of Irish music. The feedback so far has been very positive, and I do appreciate your help with maintaining this site. Thank You!
