Seattle, WA (PressExposure) February 04, 2013 -- Marie Buckner, flutist, is proud to announce the release of her new recording titled, "All-Time Favorite Patriotic Tunes." Recording contains perennial favorites "America the Beautiful", "Caissons Go Rolling Along", and "Yankee Doodle" - among others. Release is available in formats ranging from immediately downloadable digital MP3 version, individual ringtones to CD. Retail quality, full-color CD comes in cellophane-wrapped standard jewel case with 4-panel insert and 2-sided tray card.
"After entertaining for so many audiences, and receiving such positive feedback, I have noticed that the immense popularity of patriotic tunes never grows old," stated Marie in a recent interview. "My love for patriotic songs started back in elementary school when we learned Yankee Doodle Dandy on our recorders. From there, the lifelong love affair blossomed into marching band and live performances during a variety of sporting events. There is nothing as stimulating as playing or listening to a John Philip Sousa march, in my opinion. And, my live performances currently include a number of George M. Cohan tunes that were written during World War I as a way to spark the patriotism of our nation while also keeping the spirit of our troops up. Everyone loves to hear Cohan's "Yankee Doodle Dandy."
"I like to tell my audiences the story about my uncle, who served as a Marine during WWII and the Korean War, wanting to have the Marine's Hymn as his ringtone. He was so proud of being a Marine and just loved hearing me play his favorite song for him. There's something special about patriotic tunes that cannot die. Hearing the tunes played on a flute offers another perspective to the wonderful sounds this magical instrument brings to the music. It's just fun to see people's expressions when listening to these sounds."
"Over and over I received requests for an album of my flute music. So, in response to these special requests, it is with great pleasure that I present this newest recording. If you love the flute and patriotic tunes, this album will bring a smile to your face and soul. Enjoy!"
