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.
