Program Notes

Warren Barker’s classic band arrangement of Danny Boy is one of the all-time best sellers. Andy Clark has taken Warren’s great arrangement and adapted it for flexible instrumentation in a way that retains all of the charm of the original. It’s playable with any instrumentation as long as the four basic parts are covered.

- Program Note from publisher

Danny Boy is a ballad, written by English songwriter Frederic Weatherly in 1913, and set to the traditional Irish melody of Londonderry Air.

The Londonderry Air is an Irish air that originated in County Londonderry. It is popular among the American Irish diaspora and is well known throughout the world. The tune is played as the victory sporting anthem of Northern Ireland at the Commonwealth Games.
