From the Publisher
Each piece in this collection is based upon a familiar American folk song or ballad (Erie Canal; Shenandoah; The House Carpenter; Blow the Candle Out; Come Life, Shaker Life/Simple Gifts), yet given a totally new treatment. An enjoyable work to perform and excellent for recital programs.
