Concert Band - Grade 1
Arranged by David A. Myers. Score and Parts. Midwest Music #GMM223. Published by Midwest Music (WE.GMM223).
In this second in his series of American folk song band arrangements (following The Blue Tail Fly"), Myers captures the essence of a trip down this famous early American express transportation route. Listeners can easily imagine the slow clip-clop of mules as they pull the heavy barges, as well as the sounds of locks opening and closing. Syncopation and a rich palette of scoring add to the musical enjoyment in this always surprising arrangement!".
