Add a fun Appalachian tune to your next concert set, along with banjo and other traditional instruments! Excellent educational piece in both bringing the lower register tone forward and exploring color fitting to the style. The melodic line passes between parts, developing a further sense of harmony with intermediate choirs, while choirs of any skill set will have a great time bringing this piece to life. A rare gem novelty piece for women’s voices, singers can play up the dramatic slow section with a surprising twist of a finish.
