This is a rollicking, lighthearted, sassy piece to liven up your concert. It is a traditional Irish children’s street song arranged by Canadian composer and conductor Jon Washburn. The parts move in 3rds and are easily learned. There is a wonderful full recording on the Walton site. There are no instructions for clapping and stomping, but be creative – let your students design that part.
