Madeline MacNeil's Page

Maddie's Page 

Madeline MacNeil's website at www.madelinemacneil.com is no longer online and we wanted to be able to offer her many friends and fans some of her books and various resources to access digital downloads of her music.   It just didn't seem right to have it go away just yet so this page will be dedicated to all things Maddie.

I'll work on the page as I can and hope to have it in a more presentable form soon.  I have copies of Maddie's Trio and Quartet Ensembles For Mountain Dulcimer Players book/cd along with a few other books she authored and will get those ready for sale soon.  Additionally, I will be working on compiling her unpublished tablature for both mountain and hammered dulcimer into books so her music can continue to be enjoyed by all of us.

Many of Maddie's recordings are available for download through several streaming services such as Apple Music, Amazon, iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, and Pandora. Her books published by Mel Bay are of course still available from all Mel Bay sources as well as Amazon.com and other music sites.  Royalties from the sales of her Mel Bay books will go to the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley which is in the process of putting together a permanent exhibit on Maddie and her many contributions to the community and the world.

Maddie would like nothing better than to know people are still enjoying her music and we are happy to have a way to help share her many many gifts with all of you.

Stay tuned!!!!
