Burritt-Blue Ridge (SP)-2M - Product Information
Blue Ridge by Michael Burritt is a duet scored for two 5-octave marimbas. This piece was commissioned by the James Madison University Percussion Studio with Michael Overman as the project coordinator. The duo brings together the styles of folk music, jazz and pop with a tip of the hat to Phillip glass in the coda. Can they all work together? You decide! The title of the piece is a homage to the stunning Blue Ridge Mountains that surround the JMU campus in Harrisonburg, VA.
