SKU: A0.961201

Composed by George M. Cohan. Arranged by Robert Coil. Broadway,Holiday,Jazz,Musical/Show. Score and parts. 12 pages. Polished Brass #6231635. Published by Polished Brass (A0.961201).

Arranged for trombone quintet, with an eye to sharing the melody and interest among all parts. The range on the first part is to Bb4 above the staff and the bass trombone goes to Bb1 below the staff. This should be within the grasp of a good high school group, and has enough variety to be enjoyed by advanced players. (ASPN pitch notation) Of particular interest for trombonists are the falls and interplay between the melody and the echo parts.

It is hard to find a tune that does a better job of capturing the pride of the Irish than "Harrigan". "Harrigan" was written for the musical Fifty Miles From Boston which opened February 3, 1908 and closed a month later. The song title is a tribute to the Irish-American actor, Edward Harrigan. While the other major songs from the musical are rarely performed, "Harrigan" found favor with audiences. Born to Irish parents, it shouldn't be surprising that Cohan's lyrics, "proud of all the Irish that is in me" have a heart-felt ring to them. It didn't hurt that another actor of Irish descent, James Cagney, sang the piece in the very successful production about Cohan, Yankee Doodle Dandy.

The arranger, Bob Coil, is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of music, where he studied bass trombone with Betty Glover. Dr. Coil is the leader of the Bones of Cincinnatus trombone ensemble in Cincinnati, OH.
