We are deeply saddened to have learned of the passing of our longtime friend, Peter Glenn. It was music that brought us together. We are mutual members of the Folk Project of Northern New Jersey, and from there we branched off into a group that performs Irish music very seriously, but just for fun. He was a major player in our Irish group. Peter was brilliant at music and had a wonderful voice. We will miss his soloing on "Carrickfergus." But, mostly, we will miss him.
