Program Notes

Stephen Bulla joined the United States Marine Band in 1980, was appointed chief arranger in 1989, and served in that capacity until his retirement in 2010. Bulla arranged this set of well-known Irish songs for Marine Band baritone soloist Master Gunnery Sergeant Kevin Bennear, and it has been a favorite of Marine Band audiences since its première.

The rich musical heritage of Ireland served as the source for these tunes, but it is an Ireland seen through the rose-tinted lens of Irish America. The songs in this both reverent and joyous medley include the popular tunes That’s an Irish Lullaby, Clancy Lowered the Boom, Irish Washer Woman, ’Tis the Last Rose of Summer, Galway Piper, and McNamara’s Band.
