October's Student Composer Showcase is Dummerston's Molly Durling, a 9th grader at Brattleboro Union High School. Molly has a life-long passion for Northern traditional music, from contra dances to fiddle music of Ireland, Scotland, Canada, and Norway. Grand Jig is a tribute to her ancestors, "...who came from different countries, played different instruments and remembered the old songs."
VPR Classical's Student Composer Showcase is produced in partnership with Music-COMP's online mentoring program.
Grand Jig was recorded during Opus 24 in May 2, 2012. Concert was held at the Ludlow Town Hall Auditorium with musicians: Sarah Briggs, violin; Elizabeth Reed, viola; Michael Close, cello; Evan Premo, bass
