NSC Clancy Bros. (27) RE: Clancy Bros. 25 Feb 00


The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem made a huge contibution to the Irish song tradition and were extremely important in making it popular.

However, Tchaikovsky, the Irish song tradition, in Ireland, did not need reviving. It has always remained alive and strong and is still strong today. You simply have to look at the number of singing festivals(which cater for unaccompanied Irish traditional songs) and see the hundreds who attend to understand this.

The revival was purely among ethnic Irish communities in the USA, UK, Canada, Australia and elsewhwere.

However, my interest in Irish Trad songs developed through listening to Dylan, Guthrie, then Clancy's and Dubliners and McPeakes, so they were wery important to me, and of course there are no better entertainers. I love them.
