Musical Sketchbook: Danny Boy

A while ago, a concert series I volunteer for presented baritone John Brancy and pianist Peter Dugan. They gave a memorable concert focused on music of the World War I ear (which they have subsequently released as a recording).

One of the most compelling moments was their arrangement of Danny Boy.

And that tune!  Just two more versions because I’m like that, first Bill Evans:

And the beloved, and much missed Oscar Shumsky (who gave maybe the best violin recital I ever attended).
