Apologies for being a bit late. The 20th anniversary of the death of Seamus Ennis, probably one of the greatest Irish pipers and music collectors occurred on October 5th. He died of cancer aged 69 and was a sad loss to the music community world wide. His recordings are still great favourites of mine.

Lomax, Ennis, Henderson. An era has definitely passed. And the world is considerably poorer.

I think it was about a year ago that I got a nice CD of Seamus Ennis which Green Linnet offered, I thoroughly enjoyed! And to think that once I thought that I was the only person who actually listens to recordings of pipe players!

(Christy Moore)

Oh the easter snow
It is faded away,
It was so rare and beutiful,
Now it's faded back into the clay

Those days will be remembered
Beyond out in the Naul,
Listening to the masters notes
As gently they did fall.
OH.....the music
As Seamus he did play,
But the thaw crept over the mantle white
And turned it back into the clay.


He gazed at the embers in reflection,
He called up lost verses again,
He smiled at a roguish recollection,
While his fingers gripped the glass to stem the pain.
When knocked on his door would always open,
With a welcome he'd bid the time of day.
Though we came when the last flakes were melted,
While they lay upon the ground we stayed away.

1951, he joined the BBC. He moved to London to work with producer Brian George. In 1952 he married Margaret Glynn. They had two children, Catherine (growing up she became a famous organist[5]) and Christopher. His job was to record the traditional music of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland and to present it on the BBC Home Service. The programme was called As I Roved Out and ran until 1958.
