Welcome to the Australian Traditional Music Tunes Archive, a searchable collection of tunes in ABC Music Notation format (on this wiki), and associated supporting bio and documentary material (in the companion Related People Archive). This site is a repository for collected Australian Traditional Music, with the aim of making these tunes more widely available and used. The initial core of tunes come from the Bush Traditions' National Folk Festival Collections, compiled by Ray Mulligan. Recordings of many of these tunes are provided in the recordings archive.
You can view the list of All Tunes, Browse Tunes belonging various categories (key, meter, rhythm), or Find Tunes matching the specified category criteria. These options are all provided in the navigation panel on the LHS. Or look through the list of tunes in each NFF Book.
If you are new here, please look at our Getting Started page for some guidance on exploring tunes, and perhaps even contributing by adding & editing tunes on this site.
