Good Bye Derek Harrington

Friends for life

It is with great sadness that we say good bye to our long-time friend, Derek Harrington. Jimmy performed with Derek on and off for close to 40 years. Derek died at the too-young age of 66 years old at his adopted home of St. John’s Newfoundland on 22 February, leaving behind a legacy of music that will live on long into the future. In the words of Hamlet:

He was a man. Take him for all in all.

I shall not look upon his like again.”

Jimmy had a wonderful time in Newfoundland for the 30th anniversary of the Shamrock festival. From the rehearsal to the festival itself, the music was great. After the festival, he enjoyed a visit at the Croft house to help remember Joseph Croft and finally he relaxed at the always welcoming Shamrock City.
