Wee Folk, The

Story

David Curry was born in 1899 in Belfast, where he worked as a conductor, arranger, and broadcaster. He also played violin. I have always enjoyed listening to his music, which included his own arrangements of traditional melodies. I recorded some of these tunes from the radio when I was young, which allowed me an opportunity to learn them. One such tune is the hornpipe featured here, played and arranged in a two-part version for piano by the inimitable Barbara MacDonald Magone. By presenting tunes associated with Mr. Curry, I pay my sincere homage to him in the hope that his name and musical works are never forgotten.
