The death has occurred of Eamon de Buitlear - Irish traditional musician, film-maker, conservationist, language enthusiast, fly-fisherman, Senator .... a true gentleman.

RIP

An important generation of the Irish revival is on the fade out-he did not ever do too much with the chieftains if at all-wondering bout that maybe just first lp any ideas
-o'riada never liked accordions finding them too mechanical

Not the Chieftains but, in very similar vein, he did lead Ceoltóití Laighean.

'Miles and Miles of Music' is a lovely film he did on the collecting days of Séamus Ennis. At some point I realised how strong his the background sounds in it, birdsong, seagulls etc etc., were coloured by his background as a filmer of the natural world.

.. and played for a time with O Riada's Ceoltoirí Chuallan.

He was a lovely man who had a sizeable impact on a number of very different areas of Irish life. I last heard him giving a talk on wildlife in Galway about two years ago - already in his eighties. Dapper to the end and a charming speaker in both national languages.

Regards

Forty years ago this month Clare piper Willie Clancy died at the early age of fifty-five. That summer a memorial concert was held in Dublin's Liberty Hall and I was lucky enough to be there. A galaxy of traditional musicians were there to bring their musical tributes. MC Tony MacMahon (presenter for many years of RTE's traditional music programme "The Long Note") introduced one after another singer, musician or group whose music I had heard but scarcely hoped to see in the flesh. Seamus Ennis, Joe Burke, Tony Mac Mahon himself and many more played their choice pieces. The two off-shoots of Seán Ó Riada's Ceoltóirí Chualann, the Chieftains and Ceoltóirí Laighean also appeared (eventually in the case of the Chieftains, their approach being gauged by which pub they had so far reached). Ceoltóirí Laighean was led by button-accordion-player Éamon de Buitléar. Here's the only clip I could find on YouTube (which looks to be from around that time):-
