Buy your Maggie Sansone Maggie's Big Book of Celtic Tunes from Eagle Music Shop and receive our premier workshop setup at no extra cost.

 The Music is transcribed from the playing of Maggie Sansone, America's premier hammered dulcimer player and teacher specializing in Celtic music, from six of her most popular recordings: Traditions, Mist & Stone, Dance Upon the Shore, A Traveler's Dream, Mystic Dance and Merrily Greet the Time. The music is in standard notation. All tunes and arrangements can be played easily on 12/11 as well as the larger extended range hammered dulcimer models. The music and arrangements cover a wide range of levels from experienced-beginner to advanced as many of the tunes are presented as a simple melody line with chords and others are transcribed with fuller arrangements and optional variations. This stunning collection of music will thrill both students of the hammered dulcimer and Celtic music lovers, as well as offer invaluable insight into Maggie Sansone's playing and arranging style.
