Thread Name: Liam Clancy As A Ballad Singer
Subject: RE: Liam Clancy As A Ballad Singer
Hey - how did we get to talking about Tommy Makem? ;)

No worries, though; Tommy's a hero of mine, as are the Clancys as a group.

Yes, I am aware that when Dylan said "ballad", he meant songs like "Carrickfergus", not necessarily the 25-verse lyrical epics that some of you are referring to.

A true original, Liam was.

Speaking of The Bard Of Armagh, by the way - this August marks ten years since his passing. I know I miss Tommy and all the Clancys.
