Program Notes

This memorable Civil War-era folk song has a distinctively haunting quality that one can't help but be affected by. The moving melody opens the piece on a slightly melancholy note that leads to the main, spirited middle section that glistens with good-natured rhythmic activity. Adding to the authenticity, the entertaining addition of washboard and spoons brings this catchy bluegrass tune to life, helping us connect to this delightful American folk song.
