One of my passions in life is listening to Celtic music. Probably the best Celtic music available today comes from a group called Celtic Thunder. The only time I ever bother to turn PBS on anymore is when I know they will be featured. Occasionally I will also watch Celtic Women as well.
So it is with great sadness that I report the loss of the
lead singer George Donaldson
George Donaldson (February 1, 1968 – March 12, 2014), was the oldest member of the group and was a well-known balladeer, guitarist and flautist from Glasgow, Scotland. Donaldson was a bus builder by trade and was self-taught as a musician. At Scotland’s Celtic Park, Donaldson played to 65,000 fans at the opening match of the 2000-2001 season. He released his new solo album “The World In My Mind” in April/May 2013. Big George, as he was affectionately known, passed away suddenly on 12 March 2014 in his home town of Glasgow. He is survived by his wife Carolyn and daughter Sarah.
