Concert Band

The Erie Canal

Composed by

David A. Myers

In this  second in his series of American folk song band arrangements (following "The Blue Tail Fly"), Myers captures the essence of a trip down this famous early American express transportation route.  Listeners can easily imagine the slow clip-clop of mules as they pull the heavy barges, as well as the sounds of locks opening and closing.  Syncopation and a rich palette of scoring add to the musical enjoyment in this always surprising arrangement!
