Percy Aldridge Grainger (1882-1961) was an Australian-born composer, arranger, and pianist. He played an important role in reviving interest in British folk music in the early 20th century. His Country Gardens, Shepherd's Hey, Molly on the Shore, and Lincolnshire Posy, were the most frequently recorded.
Country Gardens is an English folk tune that was first used in 1728 in The Quaker's Opera. Percy Aldridge Grainger's arrangement for piano and orchestra is a grade school orchestra favorite.
