"'Neath an Irish Sky" is a collection of traditional Irish folk songs arranged for marching band.  The show opens with "Follow Me Up to Carlow", an exciting 12/8 jig in a minor key that will get everyone's toes tapping with its contrast of percussion, bold brass, and woodwind interludes.  Next, there is "The Moorlough Shore", a haunting ballad that can feature a flute and alto sax soloist.  Next, is "The Wearing of the Green", an up-tempo melody that dates back to the Irish Rebellion and features your percussion.  "Reprise and Finale" brings the show full circle with a reprise of the "Carlow" theme that builds to a big finale.  This is a show that St. Patrick and your audience will love!
