Carol Walker - Tailless Tunes

Item number 1310162, Regular price $20.00

Tailless Tunes, or Manx Music For The Mountain Dulcimer, contains over 30 traditional songs from the Isle Of Man, all arranged specifically for mountain dulcimer by the one and only Carol Walker.

Music has always been a part of the Isle Of Man's culture. Because of its proximity to Ireland, Scotland and England, Manx music reflects the influences of all these places. You'll hear Celtic influences throughout the tunes, and will find elements drawn from Irish laments, Scottish lullabies and popular English ballads and dance music.

To quote Carol Walker in the "Tailless Tunes" introduction, "I guarantee you've not heard most of these melodies before, and I further predict that you will become as smitten by all of them as I have."

74 pages.

When people think of heirloom-quality instruments, they think of Folkcraft.

Here's why: Folkcraft instruments are handmade in the United States of America, not in a cheap overseas factory. Our instruments are hand crafted one at a time, not on an assembly line. Our instruments are made of solid woods, not out of plywood.
