Blackcat2 Are the Clancy Bros. Always Right? (19) Are the Clancy Bros. Always Right? 13 Dec 99

Hi all. This came up in another thread . . .

The Clancy Brothers on their many albums and in their countless live appearances (along with Tommy makem & Robbie O'Connell, etc.) often tell a bit of information about the songs they sing. How accurate are they? I would assume pretty accurate, but part of the basis of that assumption is that I have used the conveinence of relying upon their info during my own gigs and until I discovered the Mudcat last year and joined the discussion a couple months ago, I had little else to go on.

What do you think? Do you have instances where they are (or seem) to be off the mark? I'm just curious - they're so legendary to seem to be almost infallible, but they're human like the rest of us.
