Program Notes

In the style of the revered Holst and Vaughan Williams suites, William Harbinson has crafted an exciting band piece by using Appalachian folk songs. Moderate in difficulty and imaginatively scored, the three movements (fast - slow - fast) of this charming suite make delightful use of such tunes as Matthy Groves, Soldier Boy for Me, Edward and The Rebel Soldier.
