Carol Walker - Tailless Tunes 2

Item number 1310163, Regular price $30.00

Tailless Tunes 2, or More Manx Music For The Mountain Dulcimer, contains over 50 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.

Carol Walker quotes a Manx music friend in her introduction to Tailless Tunes 2: "One of the most important things to remember is that Manx musicians like to play around with the music - there's no one 'right' way to play or sing a tune... enjoy making the music your own!" Accompaniment CD included.

100 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.
