Tommy Makem 1932-2007

Irish music legend Tommy Makem passed away today after a long bout with lung cancer. A huge loss for the Irish community and fans of our music. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

I saw Tommy at Dublin Irish Fest a few years back. He was amazing! Never saw one guy with a banjo have such command over an audience.
