    Beautiful. When I was little my mother always took me to Army Field Band concerts at the Robin Hood Dell in Phila. Thank you for all the years of service and beautiful, inspiring music. I spent my life as a musician.

    The phrasing hear it so many times played one way, and once you hear it executed so beautifully in a different way, it takes you breath away. Amazing job folks. 👍🏻

    Ah, the "Londonderry Air," or "O Danny Boy." I thought it was "O *Johnny* Boy." Thanks for sharing and #HappySaintPatricksDay in advance!

    The conductor doesn't instill much confidence with his head stuck in the score with the occasional look up.
    The band sound great as usual.

    Just had my high school marching band’s Ireland tour canceled due to COVID-19 chaos. This gives me all the feels right now.

      It's not Danny Boy, it's the Londonderry Air. Danny Boy refers to the schlocky lyrics pasted onto the tune by some American. one of the loveliest airs ever composed, and one of the most depressing downer songs ever imagined.

      Correct. The words to the tune were written by an English lawyer ( thus they lack meaning somewhat in an Irish context) but the air is traditional Irish from much earlier times from the county Derry area.
