Subject: RE: 2021 Obit: Joe Burke Irish 'box' player
Yes, a fine box player, one if the best- living in St Louis, last time I heard?
One story about him was that when he once fell off the stage in mid-tune, he got up & before picking up the tune, explained 'me thumbstrap broke'
That's second hand, but came from a reliable source & sounds plausible!
