This was passed to us to help keep the memories of the man and the music alive and remembered. Please read and follow the link to learn the music.

Thomas J. Walsh

April 2, 1928 ~ April 10, 2008

It is with a sad pen that I write about the passing of our dear friend, leader, and teacher Thomas J. Walsh,  passed away at home April 10, 2008 at the age of 80.

Tom was born April 2, 1928 in New Britain, CT. He played Irish Traditional music since the age of 10. The son of Irish immigrants, Tom became an icon to many up and coming musicians. He taught many musicians tunes that had become less popular over the years. After the passing of his friend Eddie Burke, he teamed up with fellow musicians to compose the Eddie Burke Tune book to keep those tunes at the forefront of many seisiúns. This free book can be found on the Burke-Curry-Seery Branch website  Click Here  for download..

Thank You

    We just returned from the Ireland-Irish pavilion at Folklorama and were totally moved by the “Over the Waves” presentation. As the various hardships of the emigrating Irish were recounted I envisioned my mother’s grandfather leaving his homeland and was moved to tears. Great job! Two questions: 1) Is there a way I could acquire a script of the presentation? 2) This is the second time I have heard The Barefoot Ceili Band. but I have not been able to locate any recordings that they may have made. Do they have such? Please say yes.

    The Barefoot Ceili Band, Kyle, Kathy, D’Arcy and Dave, would like to Thank everyone for their words of praise.
    (I heard that due to popular demand they will have a record out soon), so please be patient and keep watching to see when and where they will be available
