This collection is drawn from Ken Kolodner's extensive library of arrangements for the hammered dulcimer, developed from over 30 years of teaching thousands of workshops. This second book in this two-book companion collection includes traditional and original waltzes, slow airs, marches and O'Carolan. The repertoire draws primarily from the traditional music of the United States (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 intended to be a lifetime resource for players of all levels. Kolodner is widely known as one of the most prominent teachers and performers of the hammered dulcimer and is especially known for his teaching of arranging and backup techniques.

    Ken's arrangements are excellent. Both of his Sandbridge books are helpful to teach not only the tunes, but new arranging and embellishing ideas.
