Reel by Darach de Brun [ RIP ]. Sad anniversary - it’s 3 years ago today since Darach departed from us. On the last occasion I met him, he presented me with some sheet music of some of his most recent compositions [ at that time ]. His very words to me were “do whatever you like with them”, so I can think of no better way of passing on his music than posting them here, in the hope that some musicians will want to learn and play them.
This is one of a set of 3 reels he gave me, the titles all having a “supernatural” theme to them.
The story about how I, and also Ron P., met Darach in the first place is worth telling - it was actually thanks to this website, that we did eventually meet. I’ll post that later.
I will be paying a wee tribute to him this afternoon, starting and ending our “Wednesday Session” “SHMU” community radio programme with some of his music.
Although this is showing above as being on 5 recordings, those recordings almost certainly contain a different tune, but with the same title.
I’ve just uploaded a “session” photo to the home page, bottom left at the moment, of myself and Darach in a session at the Irvine Marymass Festival in 2010.

A very fitting tribute, Kenny - thanks for posting it.
