Darby’s Farewell to London

A composition from flute player Josie McDermott, “Darby’s Farewell to London” is usually played after one of my favourite reels, “The Trip To Birmingham”, which is another composition of Josie McDermott. I learned this set from Colette Coen, a friend from the Sligo / Leitrim area who plays whistle and flute.
