Dónal Clancy, Rostrevor Folk Club @Crawford’s Monday 1st October 2018

The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem brought Irish music to the world in the sixties, inspiring Bob Dylan and America’s folk music revival. Today, that tradition is continued by Liam Clancy’s son, Dónal, whose performances highlight the Clancy’s magical repertoire.

A founder member of the group Danú, Dónal played in a trio with his father Liam and cousin Robbie O’Connell, touring the US and elsewhere for two years and recording two albums. In 1998, he moved to New York where he played guitar for many of the top Irish music acts in the US, including Riverdance fiddler, Eileen Ivers, and the Chieftains. He was also a member of Irish American super group Solas. In 2006 he released his first solo guitar album ‘Close To Home’ (“a sweet masterpiece of melodic grace and riveting groove”, the Boston Globe). Now living in Ireland with his family, he has released two highly acclaimed albums – ‘Songs of a Roving Blade’ and ‘On the Lonesome Plain’, a mix of vocal tracks and guitar instrumentals.
