This collection of sweet waltzes and lively two-steps presents an exciting new repertoire for mountain dulcimer players, with playing techniques for authentic style. A CD of all the music is included, and the notation and chords in standard keys can also be used for other instruments. This music suits the mountain dulcimer well because it comes from the Cajun accordion, which has the same simple diatonic scale. The easy melodies and chord progressions in this repertoire can be played by less experienced dulcimer players, while the tips on improvisation and embellished versions offer creativity for more experienced players. Music includes "Jolie Blon," "Mardi Gras Dance," "J'ai Passe Devant ta Porte," "Allons a Lafayette," "Madame Sosthene," "The Back Door.".
