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.
