To find a product simply choose which category it belongs in from the
buttons on the left of the screen. Each category will have sub-categories
to help you find exactly what you are looking for. Select a sub-category

description. Alternatively it is possible to search for specific products
using the search box, simply type in the query box with spaces between the
words and select which type of product you are looking for from the drop
down menu. For example to find cds by the Clare fiddle player Martin Hayes
just type 'Hayes Martin' in the query box and select cds from the drop down
menu. It is also possible to search by region for example just typing
'Clare' into the query box and selecting cd will return all cds from our
database with music from the Clare region.

option is not available for all regions. Once the order is complete we will
