Like the title says, pretty much. I'm particularly looking for violin music, but any other instrument (aside from piano or guitar) should work. I've done all sorts of searches. =/ I figure there isn't any official sheet music, but I don't care if it's official or not as long as it's accurate.

Thank you for whatever help you may give!

I'm no music person, but I can tell you this:

River's Dance is *extremely* similar to an Irish jig called Strayaway Child (appropriate, huh?). You can find sheet music for it here: (thanks, Google!).

Now, I can't read music, so it may not be as similar as I remember it, but when I went to an Irish music concert and they played this jig, the first thing in my mind was, "That's River's song!" Even if it's not as close as I think it is, your audience should have the same reaction.

It's interesting to note that whenever somebody dresses up as River, she models her costume on that scene. I saw this happen 3 completely unrelated times just this last Halloween.

Sorry I can't help you with the rest.

EDIT: Wow, it pasted that sucker right in there! Use the Quote feature if you want to see the URL.

It does look somewhat similar. I was also referred to sheet music for "Irish Washerwoman", but I've played that song before, and while there are similarities, they're by no means the same song.
Once I try out the sheet music, though, I'll tell you how similar they wound up being.

Oh, and in reference to the cosplay thing, I'm actually working on that very costume, heh. But I'm also making the bodysuit (well, I bought the bodysuit, but I'm making the necessary modifications) and the greenish dress from Serenity .

Arisa,

The tune River dances to in "Safe" is a traditional (public domain) tune called The Sailor's Wife. I have probably played this tune, oh, a few thousand times. I was trying to post the sheet music here, but alas my posting skills seem deficient. I'm better at playing music than posting it online! :P PM me and I'll send you a pdf of the music. Or, you can look it up here. http://trillian.mit.edu/~jc/cgi/abc/tunefind
Pick one in D minor unless you play a fixed-pitch instrument like pennywhistle and have to play it in E minor. The other sheet music posted earlier on this thread has nothing to do with River's dance, other than it is an Irish jig, and has a similar flavor.

The other pieces you're asking about were composed for the show's soundtrack by Greg Edmonson. Try looking him up.

this might help :) http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/firefly-sheet-music/16664791?ac=1

Inara's Suite and Rivers Dance are both on it, it is piano, but as close as I know of.

Artcat81 is right... this is the only "official" sheet music that is available. Greg Edmonson transposed his works for piano, since he felt that would be the sheet music most in demand. I have a copy, even though I don't play piano. I can read music, though, and he's taken the violin parts and transposed them for piano. Permaybehaps a little "reverse engineering" could give you what you need?
