Hello all. Just thought I'd pass this sad news on. I never got to see Darren play but have enjoyed numerous Youtube workshop and performance videos of him. Seemed like a super creative and talented individual.
Very sad news indeed, couldn't believe it when I read it as he was so young.
Here is Darren playing two tunes at the 2009 O'Flaherty Retreat where he taught banjo. We will miss him.
Here is another from the same concert.
Great player! RIP
