American Folk Songs arranged by Robert D. Vandall. For Piano. Piano Collection; Piano Supplemental. Folk. Early Intermediate. Book. 24 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.88326).
Even in the simplicity of these early intermediate level arrangements there is a refreshing variety of styles and presentation. Changing dynamics, syncopation, staccato and legato touch, pedaling, and accents are among the featured technical principles, as well as a wider use of the keyboard. Lyrics are included separately at the back of the book. Titles: Black Is the Color of My True Love's Hair * Johnny Has Gone for a Soldier * Love Somebody, Yes I Do * Rise and Shine * Sandy Land * Shady Grove * She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain * Wade in the Water * What Shall We Do With the Drunken Sailor?
