Makem funeral today

Tommy Makem’s funeral is later today in Dover, New Hampshire. A large crowd of mourners is expected.

Rumor has it that my mom was planning to bring her guitar to the cabin in the Adirondacks where we’re meeting up tomorrow. If that happens, I suspect we may sing a few songs in Tommy’s honor.

P.S. Here is the Irish Echo article about Makem’s passing.

    There was a three-day-long wake.

    Whether it resembled Tim Finnegan’s Wake, I’m not sure. :)

    Missed that. I must have been drunk.
