Very sad news overnight about the death of Belfast singer Bap Kennedy. The 54 year old had been diagnosed with pancreas and bowel cancer back in May after been taken ill. Aside from his time with Energy Orchard, Kennedy also released several well received solo albums (including 2012′s “The Sailor’s Revenge” below) and collaborated with Van Morrison, Mark Knopfler, Steve Earlie and Shane MacGowan. He maintained a searingly honest blog about his battle with cancer over the last months. Condolences to his wife Brenda and all his family,
