GUEST,Rich(stupidbodhranplayer...) Tune Req: Your favorite WAKE tunes and Songs (53* d) RE: Tune Req: Your favorite WAKE tunes and Songs 10 Feb 00

The Carter family had a song called "Just a Few More Days" about a dying mother leaving her child in Jesus' care. Suzanne Thomas (formerly of Dry Branch Fire Squad) does a nice version on her solo CD "DEar Friends and Gentle Hearts". I don't know who did it originally, but the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band Used to do a song called "They Have Gone Home". I read in an issue of Treoir a few years ago about a collector of tunes who had set out (and succeeded) to not only outdo Chief O'Niell's 1001 tunes, but he collected 1002 reels. At his wake, his wife had people come over and play reels. I can't remember the man's name but I'll look it up and post it tomorrow. Rich
