Just heard the very sad news that Brendan McGlinchey passed away on Saturday. May he RIP

Re: Brendan McGlinchey

Very sad. Not just a great player but a great composer also. RIP.

Re: Brendan McGlinchey

That’s sad to hear. It was a rare treat to hear him play at The Return to Camden Town festival. I believe, in his working days, he was a nurse - I hope was as well cared for in his latter days as he would have done for his charges.

Re: Brendan McGlinchey

Very sad, RIP.

Re: Brendan McGlinchey

Another one that I am very sorry to hear of. RIP

Re: Brendan McGlinchey

I almost wasn’t sure whether to believe this as I could not find anything online when I first saw this. RIP Brendan. Such wonderful music, such a sweet fiddle, and his own tunes are magnificent.

Re: Brendan McGlinchey

I hope that, at least, he was able to enjoy the resurgence of his tune Splendid Isolation in his last days.

Re: Brendan McGlinchey

A master, an incredible musician, and to top it all, a very lovely gentle man with a lovely smile

I had the privilege of playing a gig with him once. An amazing musician and a beautiful man. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

Re: Brendan McGlinchey

Made me very sad when I heard this. I’ve learned many tunes by listening to his recordings. RIP Brendan and thank you.
