Sunrise Over Blue Ridge

Blue Ridge (or The Blue Ridge Mountains) is a mountain range within the larger Appalachian Mountains.  The trees growing on the mountainside in this area release hydrocarbons into the atmosphere.  The natural haze produced in this process, when the range is viewed from a distance, gives the mountains a distinctive blueish colour.

Various Indian tribes, including Siouan, Manahoac, Shawnee and Cherokee, farmed the mountainside and fished the Blue Ridge Lake for food, making Blue Ridge their natural homeland.

In the early 1600’s, western settlers moved into Virginia and Georgia.  As their trade and industry increased in size so did the land they required.  This expansion included encroachment into Native American’s land which caused frequent hostility between settlers and tribes.  Eventually the native inhabitants were pushed further and further into the west and eventually out of the Blue Ridge Mountain range.  Blue Ridge is now predominantly a tourist area stretching across two national parks, Shenandoah, and the Great Smoky Mountains.

Sunrise Over Blue Ridge takes its inspiration from the wonderful landscapes which can be seen in this part of the world.

Sunrise Over Blue Ridge is dedicated to Cory Band and received its première in November 2008 at The Sage, Gateshead, as part of the band's winning programme at the Brass in Concert Championships.
