New World Festival Waltz

Composer Kathy Eddy has written a waltz celebrating the Festival’s 25th anniversary! Piper Steve Eubanks opened the 25th festival with this tune and in the late afternoon, singers and instrumentalists of all stripes came together in the Dance Tent for its premiere!  

The New World Festival Waltze
       ~Kathy Eddy

When the summer is turning and fall’s in the air
When the fiddlers and pipers have come
Then it’s time to go dancin’ in the hills of Vermont.
Let the mountains and the music lift our hearts!

New World, New World, world of dancing and song
Where all may have a part
New World, New World, world of kindness and peace
‘cross borders, let the nations join hands!

When the summer is turning and fall’s in the air
When the fiddlers and pipers have come
Then it’s time to go dancin’ in the hills of Vermont
Let the mountains and the music lift our hearts!

The music can be found here.
