Celtic festivals, maypoles, and country fairs
in this spirited and lively piece. Set in
an easy 6/8 time, players are transported
back to a time of ancient dances and celebrations
in Ireland. The lower voices begin with bagpipe
drones as violins take on the first theme.
Infectious melodies and secondary themes complete
this endearing piece. Students have a chance
to work on bow distribution, hooked bowing,
pizzicato and dynamics.
