Dulcimer Music Books
   

Greenwich Village - The Happy Folk Singing Days 50s & 60s Visit the Greenwich Village folk music scene of the 1960s, and bring your dulcimer! Ralph Lee Smith was there and saw it all. He was the only dulcimer player in the Village's old-timey string bands during the Folk Revival's glory days. A fascinating text and rare photographs bring you to Washington Square, the coffeehouses and the music gatherings at the Folklore Center and in Allan Block's Sandal Shop, where young enthusiasts created a musical revolution. The book contains a selection of the songs and tunes that they played and swapped as they reclaimed a lost American heritage. If you can't play old tunes such as "Finger Ring", "Dance All Night with a Bottle in Your Hand", and "Chickens are a-Crowin'", get this book, light a candle and bring the Greenwich Village folk scene to your home or coffeehouse! Includes dulcimer tab in DAA and DAD, musical notation and guitar chords. 20317   $12.95
