New Repertoire:

Appalachian Folk Dream - JB100 / $65.00audio available for this titlesample available for this title

Natural beauty and cultural heritage inspire this newest work from composer Timothy Mahr. Lyrical and rhythmic, Appalachian Folk Dream provides a wonderful opportunity to expose the early intermediate band to new rhythms and sonorities. Opportunity for solo trumpet.

Duration: 6:36


Taco Tiempo - Q882305 / $55.00audio available for this titlesample available for this title

Taco Tiempo is Spanish for “taco time.” It has nothing to do with the food franchise found mostly in the western United States. The work is intended as a typical mariachi style melody, featuring two trumpets playing in thirds and sixths, a device used extensively in the later Americanized mariachi music of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. The true mariachi band is based on Mexican folk music, played originally on stringed instruments, with the later addition of trumpets. The piece stands on its own, and the composer hopes that it will provide a change of pace or as an encore selection on band programs at all levels.

Duration: 2:00


Fantasy on American Folk Songs - Score (Elledge) - WB476F / $8.00audio available for this titlesample available for this title

Dwayne Milburn, composer of the popular American Hymnsong Suite (WB365), writes a fantastic treatment of four popular American folk songs: Little Liza Jane, Black is the Color of My True Love’s Hair, All the Pretty Little Horses, and Sweet Betsy from Pike. Independent writing and chamber-music like passages will sharpen your late intermediate band’s musicality. Perfect selection for a patriotic concert!
