Mícheál Ó Domhnaill - A Remembrance
The Early U.S. Years 1981-1986
Greg Duffy, a native Philadelphian and a long-time fan of Celtic music and dance, kindly made this special photo montage available for us to share with you here on our Open Page. We are so sorry to learn that Greg passed away 28/8/08 and we will keep the Duffy family in our thoughts and prayers. Here's a little more about Greg and his work:
Greg Duffy photographed concert performances for over 30 years at various venues in the Eastern U.S. The loss of Mícheál Ó Domhnaill in July '06 prompted Greg to gather performance photos he'd made during the wonderful Irish singer and guitarist's early years in the U.S. This slideshow was created with computer graphics help from daughter Barbara, and daughter-in-law Jenna Duffy, and synchronized to the song Casadh an tSúgáin (The Bothy Band from After Hours - Green Linnet). Greg's slideshow was played during the interval at the ÓDomhnaill family's "Gig for Mícheál" in Dublin, May 24, 2007.
