Seaking Obit: Tommy Makem has Passed Away (1932-2007) (229* d) RE: Obit: Tommy Makem has Passed Away- 1 Aug 2007 02 Aug 07

Hearing Tommy's singing of 'The Butcher Boy' for the first time was probably the moment that set me towards a life love of folk music.   As a young teenager I wrote and requested he sing the song when I saw The Clancys and Tommy Makem in Liverpool, probably around 1968. He sang it and it's been a cherished memory to this very sad day.

Out of interest I googled the song and unbelievably it came up on Youtube - still hits the same spot, absolutely beautiful.
