This lament, so somber, yet so beautiful...

The Solas
Lament for Frankie

"Kennedy was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma, a vicious form of cancer, in 1992. Despite his illness Kennedy continued to tour and record with Altan. The band released Island Angel in 1993, and continued to tour through 1994, the year of his death. Although Kennedy had experienced 18 months in remission, the cancer returned "full blast" afterwards.[9] He died on 19 September at the age of 38 in the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast."
