If you were a fan of the late Liam Clancy you will be pleased to hear that much of his spirit and musical talent remains with us through his son, Dónal. Dónal Clancy is regarded as one of Ireland’s finest guitarists. As stated, he is the son of the world-renowned singer Liam Clancy of The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem and has since the death of his father focused his attention on the family repertoire of songs that he grew up with, while keeping the Clancy tradition alive with his solo performances.
Dónal grew up in a household and community steeped in music. He spent his early childhood in Canada and the US before his family settled back in An Rinn, Co. Waterford in 1983. His father gave him his first guitar at the age of eight and he was playing professionally by his early teens.
Dónal’s latest album On the Lonesome Plain features a mix of seven vocal tracks and six guitar instrumentals, including two of his own compositions A Strike for Victory commemorating the 1916 Easter Rising. Arty McGlynn said of the album: “The minute I heard this record it reminded me of his father, Liam: his tone and turn of phrase. As well as being a great singer Dónal is also a great guitar player.”
Sligo music lovers will have a unique chance to see Dónal live on Sat 8th Dec next when he will play an intimate house concert at Moy River Folk Club in Cloonacool.
The show starts at 8pm and booking is essential – 087 2512030.
