Getting to the heart of leaving home to seek a better life, this mid-19th century Irish folk song is given an authentic yet unique treatment in a setting for younger bands. Starting with a lilting upper woodwind melody with hand percussion, an expressive legato section follows before a return to the original material. Percussionists have several soli sections where they get a chance to shine. A brisk tempo, well-written percussion parts, and plenty of dynamic contrasts make this an excellent choice for concert and festival performances.
