Rest in Peace, Joe Burke

A mighty sad day for the magnificent ambassador for the music and tradition.

Who could forget his epic storytelling, especially his long winded joke about the local barber's pilgrimage to Vatican City!

No one would know better of those famous stories than the great piper Michael Cooney. When they were in town, their antics were beyond hilarity!

A sad day indeed for all admirers of Joe Burke, the great accordion player and fine man!

Mark, I thought of you when I saw that sad news because you conveyed your stories of him with the trio back when they were in the area. RIP.
