Thread Name: Help: Trad Irish or Hawaiian music for funeral
Subject: Lyr Req: Funeral songs or music : please help me
Please can anyone help me find songs/music recording suitable for playing at a funeral I am arranging for my elderly father who passed away last week. I am his only daughter. Where/how to download legally and details of recording I can pass onto funeral director. I am more than willing to pay performing rights etc but need to give details to funeral director in next 2 to 3 days if poss. I would have posted this a few days ago but was busy organising barn dance for friend's birthday etc etc.

My 93 year old father passed away last week. He liked TRADITIONAL IRISH folk songs - John McCormack (please excuse spelling errors), Bridie Gallagher, Mary O'Hara, and also TRADITIONAL Hawaiian music - eg. Sol Hoopii.
Unfortunately his CDs were cleared out of his house when he moved into a nursing home about 3 years ago. I have a few of his tapes (copies of his LPs/CDs he made for listening in car years ago)but not commercial ones. I found one Mary O'Hara CD but must have been old "remastered" one from old recording - could not make out the words.
