by William Kentner Anderson & Anderson-Fader Duo

This set of folksong settings for two guitars culminates in *The Farmer in the Man*, which is also the punch line of W. Kentner Anderson's *Scherzo* (Counterpoint of Supertonics), for solo guitar. The setting *is* the Scherzo. Just add the tune.

Album Notes
Folksong settings in the tradition of Brahms and Britten, who also put their stamp on traditional tunes.

The Wedding Dress--- A maiden is preparing her wedding dress, but her peculiarities prevent her from taking the plunge. "All she does is just sit and sew."

The Erie I -- boozing and whoring on the Erie Canal

Whistle, Daughter, Whistle-- Like the wedding dress, coupling is the aim here, but in this case the daughter finally does whistle, and so, we assume, she gets her man.

The Erie II -- the debauchery escalates

The Farmer is the Man -- this is the punchline of Anderson's *Scherzo (Counterpoint of Supertonics)* for solo guitar, which proves to be the accompaniment for *The Farmer is the Man*, one of the tunes that Carl Sandburg collected in his American Songbag.

Guitarist/composer William Anderson has appeared on the Leonard Lopate Show on WNYC, and on NPR's All Things Considered, discussing *Sounding Beckett*, the off-Broadway musical that he produced in September 2012.

The Anderson/Fader Guitar Duo has been heard in concerts throughout the US, Latin America and Europe, playing any and all repertoire for pairs of plucked strings.  Both were proteges of the legendary guitarist David Starobin.   Based in New York City, the duo performed with many presenters and organizations, including ISCM, Music From Japan, Theater Chamber Players, and with James Levine and the Metropolitan Opera Chamber Players. The duo is regularly featured on concerts given by the Cygnus Ensemble, most recently in a residency at the Library of Congress.
