Elwood Donnelly - Such Singing You Will Hear: 35 Songs Of The Carter Family

Item number 1310170, Regular price $20.00

After many years of reading and studying Carter Family memorabilia, as well as listening to and practicing most of their recordings, Elwood Donnelly has compiled 35 of the 300 songs by the Carter Family into a book of instructions and notes for mountain dulcimer, backup and voice.

The Carter Family was a country music group from Maces Spring, Virginia on Clinch Mountain, made of of Alvin Pleasants (A.P.) Carter, his wife Sara, and her cousin Maybelle Addington. Their skillful playing and close-harmony singing made them a huge commercial success beginning in 1927, right through the Depression and into the early 1940's. Their songs have bewitched music fans and players ever since.

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.
