Program Notes

A musical portrait of the United States as a series of ethnic variations on a single theme – in this case, one of the earliest popular songs of the original colonies: Barbara Allen. The folk tune travels through Italian, Spanish, Irish, Russian and Israeli neighborhoods and is taught to dance, rock out and even to sing the blues.
