Quick Overview

Mountain Dance contains three Appalachian folk songs: "Cluck Old Hen," "Sourwood Mountain," and "Poor Polly." It was written to depict the Appalachian region of the country and its heritage of bluegrass music and fine musicianship. Hints of Irish music can be heard, as many of the folk songs from this area were developed by the Irish immigrants who settled in this part of the country. These inluences are beautifully embedded in a truly symphonic setting by composer Ed Keifer.
