Description

Played by the fabulous Cory Band in their 2016 Christmas series, this lively piece is a real audience pleaser. It brightens up a Christmas concert and is an arrangement of two dances; Christmas jig, in 6/8 time, and a reel in 4/4, based on the traditional French Canadian folk song; ‘The Mouth of the Tobique’.

The basses have a vital role in creating a Celtic style drone sound, and the percussion a simple but effective Irish rhythm.
A great audience pleaser, and ideal as the encore to round off a concert and leave a lasting memory in the minds of the listeners.
