Program Notes

Irish Washerwoman is one of the most well-known and beloved Irish jigs. This arrangement for solo xylophone and concert band originally appeared in a collection of Irish tunes for xylophone and marimba trio, titled "The Celtic Xylophone, Book 1". It is the perfect showpiece for a percussionist wanting to display his or her two-mallet keyboard technique.
