A Celtic Fair

by Maggie Sansone

Book with online audio. Music for the hammered dulcimer from the album of the same title. Maggie has created a perfect collection for all levels of playing, including both a beginning "melody-only" version and challenging intermediate versions with variations, ornaments, flams and bass runs. Two early music pieces present the melody, and a version for duet and quartet with bass line. The music is drawn from jigs, reels and airs from Ireland, Scotland and Brittany, France and Renaissance dance manuscripts. Presented as the basic melody with chords. Many of the tunes include a variety of advanced techniques and use of unusual modes and scales and interesting chord substitution to add spice and challenge you. Multiple levels. 56 pp.
