Some melodies just have a timeless quality and Londonderry Air is one such melody. A traditional Irish Air, the melody can be traced back to the early 1600’s, albeit with varying theories of origination from the musical historians (there is a theory that suggests it originates from lowland Scotland but I’ll not push that one) . It’s testament to how a melody can have a life and a travel a journey through the decades and across continents. It has been been played by all varieties of instruments and will be for some time to come I’m sure.
