An original work written in the British folk-song style by Richard Meyer, the two contrasting movements provide a variety of enriching musical experiences. The first movement features cantabile solos for cello and violin, while the exciting second movement utilizes a jig and a fiddle tune along with some nice contemporary harmonies to create a powerful concert selection.

    Created by the ever talented Richard Meyer, Folk Song and Shanty is a tune both mystical and lovely. It requires a skilled cellist and violinist for the rich beginning solos. With two contrasting movments, yet so perfectly at harmony, this can easily be one of my favorite pieces.
