Makem & Clancy
Event Date: 17th May at 8pm
Rory and Donal – the sons of, respectively, Tommy Makem and Liam Clancy – are justifiably proud of their families’ storied place in Irish music. Both have seized the opportunity to perform extensively with their famous fathers over the years, all over the world.
They’ve also forged their own musical paths. Dónal Clancy, an acclaimed guitarist, singer and performer, has toured both solo and with The Chieftans, Solas and Danu. Rory Makem is a seasoned performer with over 25 years on the road and he has toured extensively with The Makem and Spain Brothers.
Throughout their individual pursuits the latter-day Makem and Clancy have always sung the praises – literally – of their forebears. They finally joined forces as a duo in 2016 to carry on the legacies of The Clancy Brothers and the original Makem and Clancy, belting out classics like “Brennan on the Moor,” “Whistling Gypsy Rover,” and “Wild Mountain Thyme” while sharing plenty of stories and reminiscences with appreciative, enthusiastic audiences.
