A memorable old Irish jig called Road to Lisdoonvarna is the basis of this piece for young bands. Beginning lyrically with a simple statement, it gradually adds more instruments as it builds to the sprightly middle section. With the full ensemble playing the tuneful melody and the driving Irish rhythms in the percussion section, you hear all the color and flair that's characteristic of great Irish folk music.

The well-known song Greensleeves was written in 15th century England, quite possibly by King Henry VIII himself. The wistful quality of this legend is captured here by the use of lush harmonies and a rhythmic ostinato that gets transferred to different colors within the ensemble. With a hauntingly beautiful ending, this unique arrangement will be the highlight of programs at Christmas and throughout the year as well.

A stunningly beautiful Scottish folk song that tells a tale of longing, loss, and redemption. This arrangement starts in the style of an intriguing folk dance that evolves into a mournful, lyrical moment. Then taking on a more familiar character, the music pays homage to the sound of classic British folk song settings by generations of composers, helping to preserve great music from our world's history.

Music of the Water is a lyric piece that skillfully intertwines the melodies of Shenandoh and The Water Is Wide to create a piece that reflects the flowing beauty and majesty of a great river. The melodies float gracefully together and apart with moves and turns, just as rivers ebb and flow as they drift through the landscape. Wonderfully arranged, it presents a tremendous opportunity for teaching musicality and melodic style.

This piece is based on a Scottish folk song thought to have originated in the Hebrides. Common people in Scotland and Ireland would burn dried peat from the bogs for their hearth fires and gather around to tell tales and dance. The music tells of a journey, beginning with a somber and somewhat melancholy melody. It soon takes on a more upbeat feel as the tempo picks up and the mood becomes more uplifting and lively.  It presses on to a spirited and bright ending.
