American Folk  Songs

America has a rich vein of folk song in its tradition.  Some of the first songs were based on melodies taken from the first immigrants from England.  Later it developed its own folk songs.  I hope in these pages to share with you some of the best in American Folk Song



Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair
This beautiful melody is associated with Appalachia by way of Scotland.   This sensitive setting is easy enough for an intermediate piano student but expressive enough for adult players.  Great choice as an expressive recital piece or slow audition piece at this level of advancement.
