How does the New Year feel for you? Is it like getting a pony? Or maybe a new bicycle? More like the first day of summer, or the last day of school?

Do You Like Folk Music?
Our Folk Song Primer series is a great way to extend your gig repertoire or get students playing by using familiar music. The arrangements are relatively easy and can be implemented in a variety of ways and with a flexible number of performers; introductions and a repeats offer opportunities for variation by way of dynamics, colour, added percussion, etc. Be creative!
