O’Connell, Gary - Danny Boy - Video

My arrangement of Danny Boy done some years ago. Instead of just repeating the verses I decided to add a middle section that depicts Danny going off to war. On his return, the high registered chords afterwards portray his search for either his bride or father as the story is unclear which it is.
