Program Notes

The traditions of Appalachia were largely influenced by settlers from Scotland and Ireland. This reflective piece acknowledges these pioneers and their musical heritage with a musical walk through the woods and mountains of the Cumberland Gap. In addition to solo opportunities, this lovely composition allows for a welcome moment of expression.
