RiGGy Obit: Joe Joyce (Boston area Irish Musician) (7) RE: Obit: Joe Joyce (Boston area Irish Musician) 24 Jul 07


Thanks for telling us, Barry.
Joe Joyce was central to the whole "Irish Social" scene I so enjoyed in the mid-seventies. Super-welcoming and patient with the new influx of players like me who didn't grow up within the vibrant culture of Southie, Roxbury and Brighton. Tommy Magee brought me in to my first Fields Corner session and Joe was there smilin' up a storm. I think he was the first player I ever saw with his name emblazoned on the front of his accordion, like Ernest Tubb's guitar neck. Eventually the scene morphed into the Boston Coolie-Hannafin branch of Comhaltas Ceoltori √Čireann, with Joe joining Larry Reynolds, Seamus Connolly, Brendan Tonra + + + channeling the music thru the generations. Sniff, sniff. I miss 'im already.

Riggy
