Traditional Folk Tunes for String Quintet: Soldier's Joy
Traditional; arranged by Andy Carlson
"Soldier’s Joy" is probably the most widely known traditional American fiddle tune in the repertoire. In jam sessions from Carolina to California, and everywhere in between, folk musicians perform this Civil War–era hoedown. I chose to arrange this tune for string quintet to help musicians coming from a classical background familiarize themselves with this standard melody.
