Brendan Mulkere - Rest in Peace - 28th August 2020
Such sad news that the legend of Irish music in London, Brendan Mulkere passed away in the early hours of this morning.
Brendan's all-consuming passion for traditional Irish music, his unfaltering determination to pass the culture on to the next generation and put Irish music on the London stage for the first time has left an indelible mark on London's cultural landscape.
His epic work over decades produced countless fabulous second generation traditional Irish musicians and brought a wide audience
to value and respect our music as much as any other genre in this city.
Deepest sympathies to Sharon, Claire, Sinéad, Collette, all of Brendan's family, friends
and to the huge number of his 'jellybabies' who will undoubtedly continue his legacy.
May he Rest in Peace.
