GUEST,beachcomber Obit: Liam Clancy RIP (1935-2009) (109* d) RE: Obit: Liam Clancy RIP 4 Dec 2009 06 Dec 09


I remember my delight on seeing the names of famous performers like Pete Seeger, Bruce Langhorn and Frank Hamilton as "side men" on those Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem LPs of the 60s. It seemed to confirm , for me anyway, that Irish songs were "acceptable" in the wider international folk-revival that had begun. I rem too the pride I felt on hearing Irish music and song , (Incl some popularised by Liam and co.) so highly acclaimed in places like Cecil Sharpe House.
