Description
This collection of dances and songs comes from Peggy Carter’s repertoire of hammered dulcimer arrangements, drawing from years of playing live string-band music for contra dancing, Irish dancing and Royal Scottish country dancing. If you like to dance and sing, you’ll LOVE this book. Dances and Songs to Play and Sing for Hammered Dulcimer includes pieces from many parts of the world, arranged for solo performance or dance accompaniment. It includes songs for voice and dulcimer, which can also be played as solo arrangements. In addition, you’ll find marches, jigs, reels, polkas, strathspeys, waltzes and slow dances. The truth is, when playing for dance, a hammered dulcimer is all you’ll need!
