(The Legend of John Henry)arr. David A. Myers - Grand Mesa Music
This imaginative arrangement of the folk song John Henry musically describes the tale of the larger-than-life folk hero who out-dueled a steam-powered hammer. Your percussion section is featured as they recreate the sound of the machine. The band counts along as John Henry works himself into a frenzy, beating the steam hammer, only to die of exhaustion. A clever piece that audiences will thoroughly enjoy.
