It’s quite unbelievable and shocking to write these words about Conor Walsh who died suddenly on Friday night.

The Mayo-born pianist and composer was one of those unsung, talented musicians whose work had a real and lasting effect on those who heard him play and perform. Off-stage, he was a gentle, kind soul, someone who had time for everyone who came across him. He released his debut EP last year and it was a dazzling piece of work which boded well for what was to come from him. Deepest condolences to his family and friends.

There’s a post here by his family hich beautifully sums up Conor’s life and work, Nialler9 has a piece here and here’s some more biographical detail on a musician who had so much more to give.
