      The Silver Canoe


This piece is based on a song written by Margaret Embers McGee in 1918 called My Paddle’s Keen And Bright, which became a popular song sung by scouts around the campfire. The strong beat depicts the steady movement of paddles, and everyone gets an opportunity to play the A minor melody that passes from section to section. A contrasting A major section in the middle portrays a calm place on the lake where one might stop paddling and enjoy the scenery. Duration 2:50.
