Thread Name: Liam Clancy As A Ballad Singer
Subject: RE: Liam Clancy As A Ballad Singer
I've read that remark that Dylan made about Liam being a great ballad singer. I'm sure he {Dylan} meant ballad in the broadest possible sense . Liam had an excellent voice, and, as suggested above, his acting experience may have made his delivery equally special. However, to my knowledge he seldom tackled the "big" ballads.
