I arrived home last night on the train from Glasgow and it was a little too late to check my video and write this post.  So I was up early before work and managed to upload this performance of Danny Boy from my concert in St. Mary’s Metropolitan Cathedral in Edinburgh. I am just on my tea break so I thought I would finish the post and let you have a listen 🙂

 Danny Boy is a ballad written by English songwriter Frederic Weatherly in 1910.  It was set to the tune of ‘Londonderry Air’ in 1913.

The musical genre is ‘Folk Song’.  There are a few variations to the lyrics and various theories to the meaning, I feel that it’s a message from a girl saying goodbye to her boyfriend as he’s going off to war.

I hope you enjoy it 🙂
