A CELTIC CLASSIC | Originating from a 17th century tune, “Danny Boy” is perhaps the most well known and beloved Celtic tune. Interestingly, the lyrics to the popular Irish tune were written in 1910 by an English lawyer, Frederick Edward Weatherly.
While this song is a beloved classic, there is an air of mystery regarding the story behind the lyrics. Even today, scholars are unsure about the identity of “Danny Boy” but the sentiment is clear. We can all identify with the sense of longing to be reunited with those we love.
Please enjoy this stirring arrangement of the Irish classic tune, “Danny Boy”!
