What do you do when you have an unusual ensemble? Arrange something specially for them! The Irish Washerwoman is a traditional Irish folk song which is so old that no one knows who wrote it. Its melody is familiar to many people because of its wide use over many many years. This arrangement is for an ensemble with an experienced viola and cello section, but a violin and double bass section that are still learning. This upbeat arrangement is perfect for beginning musicians to perform in school or even in competitions. If you would like an arrangement which places the more difficult lines in other parts please contact me using the links below.

The arrangement goes for approx. 2 min. This purchase includes a score and parts for all performers; violin, viola, cello and double bass. It would work best for players of a beginning intermediate level. It is set in the key of G major, which is perfect for stringed instruments.

Laura Chegwidden is a pianist, cellist, double bassist and singer from Toowoomba Australia. She recently graduated with distinction from the University of Newcastle with a B.MUS majoring in Cello and Composition.
