McGee, Margaret Embers,
arr. Wissinger, Kathleen,
“My Paddle’s Keen and Bright - I” is based on a beloved “campfire” song, written by Canadian Margaret Embers McGee to honor the First Nations people and their love of the waterways. Embodying the essence of a native folk tune motif, the driving rhythms and haunting melody will make it one of your ringers’ favorite pieces.
Fully scored for 3-5 octaves, this L2+ piece is a “Split-Level” piece which allows new or beginning ringers to easily assimilate into an established group – and allows multiple-levels/grades to perform together.
