It might seem odd that a Prairie boy, who has yet to visit the Maritimes, would make an arrangement of this particular folk song. But perhaps it is not that odd at all. Farewell to Nova Scotia is a wonderful tune, and it inspired a lot of ideas. This is a clever arrangement that allows all players to play some melody and interesting backgrounds.
