This collection is drawn from Ken Kolodner's extensive library of arrangements for the hammered dulcimer, developed from his 30 plus years of teaching thousands of workshops.

This second book in this two-book companion collection includes traditional & original waltzes, slow airs, marches and O'Carolan. The repertoire draws primarily from the traditional music of the U.S. (Old-Time), Ireland, Scotland, Quebec, Cape Breton, England, Finland, Sweden, Chile and Israel. Each tune is presented as a simple melody with chord progression along with one or more detailed arrangements offering a wide range of levels of complexity. Backup and harmony parts are provided for many of the pieces. The book is a lifetime resource for players of all levels.
