Tribute to Barney McKenna (the Dubliners) Dec. 16 - 1939 - Apr. 5 - 2012 Sad news - the great, one and only, Barney McKenna died peacefully today at his home in Howth - Dublin . "Banjo" Barney McKenna, the last original member of the Irish folk band The Dubliners, died Thursday while having a morning cup of tea with a friend. He was 72 and had just marked his 50th year with the troupe. McKenna was considered the most influential banjo player in Irish folk music. He spent a half-century performing, recording and touring with the band ever since its 1962 creation in the Dublin pub O'Donoghue's. The other three founders — Ronnie Drew, Ciaran Bourke and Luke Kelly — died in 2008, 1988 and 1984, respectively. His Dutch wife, Joka, died 28 years ago and the couple had no children. He lived alone in the upscale fishing port of Howth and spent spare time tinkering with his boat and fishing on the Irish Sea. He continued to perform, despite suffering from diabetes and a mild stroke. McKenna is survived by his partner Tina, sister Marie and brother Sean, who is also a top Irish banjo player. Funeral arrangements were not immediately announced. In the Video Barney sings ; I Wish I Had Someone to Love Me.
The only surviving founding member of the Dubliners Barney McKenna has died suddenly. He was 72. McKenna played with the legendary band since 1962. They celebrated their 50th anniversary with a series of concerts in Christ Church Cathedral in January and are also participating in the official Irish single for the forthcoming European Championships. McKenna lived in Howth and he died this morning unexpectedly. Broadcaster and banjo player Ciaran Hanrahan said: "From a musical pont of view, he was the single most important figure in the development of the tenor banjo in traditional music. It was not used up until the 1960s. He popularised it. He inspired a whole generation."He described McKenna as one of "life's gentlemen" and one of the most entertaining people you could meet. "On a personal level he was such a decent, generous, humble man. He wore his talent very lightly." The Dubliners have had an incalcuable impact on the Irish ballad tradition. They are arguably the most famous Irish traditional ballad group of all time and were responsible for the resurrection of some Irish songs that had died out. "I don't think you'll ever be able to figure out what they generated for Ireland and for Dublin," Mr Hanrahan said.
