New Concert Band Music


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.

Scarborough Fair is simply one of the most beautiful and haunting melodies of all time. This setting of the melancholy tune captures the mood of a gray and rainy afternoon, perfectly matching the sounds of gently falling rain and distant rumbles of thunder. Though not essential, recorded sound effects of distant rain and thunder can be added, making it even more impressive and appealing.

This memorable Civil War-era folk song has a distinctively haunting quality that one can't help but be affected by. The moving melody opens the piece on a slightly melancoly note that leads to the main, spirited middle section that glistens with good-natured rhythmic activity. Adding to the authenticity, the entertaining addition of washboard and spoons brings this catchy bluegrass tune to life, helping us connect to this delightful American folk song.
