Karen Ryan of The London Lassies posts this: -
So very sad to hear of the passing of another true legend of Irish Music - Galway's Own - Joe Burke. Joe was a leading light in Irish music, a font of musical knowledge, an inspiration to us all for decades (indeed the absolute blueprint for many), a light hearted gentleman who was encouraging to younger musicians along the way and a consummate professional on the stage. The first album that my Dad ever bought me was 'The Funny Reel' which Joe made in 1979 with Andy McGann and Felix Dolan - This music was the soundtrack of my childhood. It was very special to be able to welcome Joe to Return to Camden Town Festival in 2007, when he performed alongside Felix Dolan and Brian Conway after the release of their 'Tribute to Andy McGann' album - that was some gig! Sending sincerest of sympathies to Anne Conroy-Burke and all of Joe's close family and friends. May he rest in peace Kx
