Subject: RE: 2020 Obit: Brendan McGlinchey
One of the greatest traditional Irish musicians ever to draw a string across a bow. Brendan came to perform in memory of his great fiddling friend Jimmy McHugh at the first memorial concert for Jimmy in Glasgow in 2000. Here is his performance of the slow air "The Bonny Bunch Of Roses" :

I've posted a few more clips from that concert which shouldn't be too hard to find.
A great loss to Irish music. My condolences to his friends and family.
