Hoe Down
By Christopher Calliendo
Piccolo and Piano
Duration 3:33

Americans in rural or southeastern parts of the country love this quick dance form which displays virtuosic footwork.  It is common to witness a succession of dancers each try to outdo previous dancers.  The music of this hoe-down supports a cowboy riding a bronco.  Musical effects help to interpret a snorting bronco, the colloquial expression "giddy on up" and the asymmetrical rhythms of a wild bronco ride.
