Another master gone

The BIB in the past has carried news of distinguished musicians from outside the worlds of bluegrass and old-time music; so thanks to Pat Sheeran for passing on the sad news of the death of the great uilleann piper Liam Og Ó Floinn after a long illness, just a month short of his 73rd birthday. He is seen above (second from left) in the original lineup of Planxty. Pat also sends this link to a YouTube video of Ó Floinn, Sean Keane, and Mark Knopfler playing 'An droichead'.
