Danny Boy

At the orchestra concert we always like to have a few small ensemble numbers. Noah's quartet played, but we were short on other stuff so I told my family we'd play something. This was the first time we'd performed as a sextet, with Fiona as well. We had one fifteen-minute rehearsal plus a run-through in the hall. It came off pretty well, I think. The tune is "Danny Boy," a.k.a. "Londonderry Air," a.k.a. "London Derrière," a.k.a. "London Butt" (by my kids -- who else?).


  1. Well done! I particularly liked the violas. :)

    This is such a gorgeous song and brings a tear to my eyes whenever I hear it. Beautiful rendition. You and your family are a huge inspiration to me!

  3. Oh and great playing! Loved the song.

  4. Yeah, that's Noah, me, Sophie, Erin, Fiona and my mom. Sorry, should have pointed that out.
