Thread Name: Liam Clancy As A Ballad Singer
Subject: RE: Liam Clancy As A Ballad Singer
Liam is my absolute favourite. I have every note he ever issued in my collection. I've researched almost every Clancy/Makem etc song that I have.

In my opinion, he was a performer first and foremost. By all accounts a superb actor (see him do Robert Emmet's 'Speech From The Dock' attached)

He is easily the best performer I have ever seen on a stage and that includes Sinatra, Springsteen and many other well regarded performers.

I can talk about him for hours. Bring it on.
