Thread Name: Folk music parts for concert band
Subject: RE: Folk music parts for concert band
Is anyone else alarmed by the thought of written arranged parts for concerts, of folk music?

Not really. I have played several in recorder groups. Some were very good, some were dire.

At the end of the day it depends on how sympathetic the arranger is to the original tune. Some seem to have a feel for the music others don't.
