By Peter Ostroushko / arr. Bob Phillips
Highland/Etling String Alternatives
Dakota Fiddle Hymn and Dance is an arrangement of a composition by virtuoso fiddle and mandolin player Peter Ostroushko. The arrangement begins with a lovely 3/4 tune that evokes visions of the Conestoga wagons traveling across the prairie. The medley continues with a bouncy old-time style tune that uses many driving rhythms for all sections. The melody is featured in all sections except bass.
