This charming arrangement is perfect for introducing students and audiences to American folk music. Easy to learn and fun to play, this medley features a tapestry of American classics, including She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, Hush Little Baby, and Grandma Grunts. Woven into the fabric are snippets of several other popular songs, including Camptown Races, A-Tisket A-Tasket, Aura Lee, and Shoo Fly. The rich harmonies will make even the youngest players sound experienced! (1:45).
