Program Notes

This folksong-based trilogy is comprised of three folksongs of differing styles and cultural backgrounds, each of which pay tribute to a legendary hero. The Irish immigrant tune from the 1840's Patrick On The Railways; the familiar Sweet Betsy and the African-American spiritual Little David, Play On combine to make a varied and interesting work.
