Jim McCann left this world on the 5 th March this year. He was a brilliant folk musician and a born entertainer. First started to study medicine
All his life he was a strong smoker, nevertheless or on account of this he was able to sing rough drinking songs the same like beautful ballads.
Meanwhile, he also had twice television shows. One was called „The MacCann Mann“, the other one „Reflections of Jim McCann“. Both were produced and broadcasted on the irish „RTE“
Rest in Peace Jim, you sadly will be missed for your grand stage performances and for your „unbeaten“ take of the well known and also well played song „Carrickfergus“, who many musicians tried to cover in ther lifetime
