Program Notes

Along the Caney Fork is a band setting of a folk-like tune that was originally written by John Hosay, James Hosay’s brother. John Hosay originally conceived the tune while walking along the Caney Fork River in eastern Tennessee on an early summer morning with his bride to be. This simplistic tune serves as a beautiful setting for young band, as it captures the essence and natural splendor of the Caney Fork River and its surroundings.
