Year of birth[edit]

Internet searches turn up both 1915 and 1922 for Rea's year of birth. 1915 is consistent with the biographical notes supplied with the Topic records. Also, Paul Gifford's book The Hammered Dulcimer: A History gives 1915. However, Fintan Vallely's The Companion to Irish Traditional Music gives it as 1922. Since both Gifford and Vallely are fairly authoritative sources, the best solution for now seems to be to mention both dates. Dsreyn 14:39, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
