Turkey in the Straw is an old time favorite and this arrangement does a bang-up job of portraying the sound of the old Bluegrass jug bands. Every section has an equally fun and important part to play, and there's a chance for the first violin to solo, too! This is a good old-fashioned hoedown for your orchestra, fun to play and entertaining for the audience as well. Duration: 2:44.
