Dan Levenson - Old-Time Festival Tunes for Fiddle & Mandolin

Pacific, Mo. — Mel Bay Publications, Inc. has announced the release of Dan Levenson's Old-Time Festival Tunes for Fiddle & Mandolin.

This book and two CD set is intended to be a tune repertoire collection and includes over 100 old-time festival favorites.

The book Contains two lines of tablature—one basic and one advanced—as well as standard notation and suggested chords. The basic version should be playable by those with general skills. The advanced version will require more time and finesse as it is more ornamental (often more than just melodic) and may include less than intuitive ways of playing some passages.
