Maureen Sellers - Songs Of The Civil War

Item number 1310132, Regular price $12.00

Maureen Sellers is a music historian that has a knack for choosing the very best songs to include in her "themed" books of dulcimer arrangements. Here, she's put together an incomparable selection of songs that were popular during the American civil war. At that period in our history, the mountain dulcimer was still in its infancy - roughly 60 years old - and these songs all translate well to the dulcimer, even today. You'll appreciate the effort she's taken with the arrangements, too!

22 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.

We put our heart and soul into every instrument we make – a technique that began nearly 50 years ago and is proudly maintained today. Go ahead and play one. We think you'll find your own heart and soul going into the music you create on a Folkcraft.
