Sarah's Valentine


Eamon Flynn composed this slow jig for his daughter Sarah on Valentine's Day when she was five years old. Sarah asked her dad to 'do a song' for her. What a lovely present to get, one that will remain documented forever. This recording comes to us courtesy of Eamon. It was taken from his CD Down by the Glenside, which he recorded with our mutual friend Helen Kisiel playing piano.
