R.I.P Liam Clancy

“The best ballad singer I ever heard”- Bob Dylan

Gutted to hear that Liam Clancy has passed away. A brilliant performer and pure legend. A member of the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, Liam died in hospital in Cork,  Ireland this afternoon.

  2. I spoke to Sid Griffin about Liam Clancy when I met him in Barnes and Noble last year in New York. I think I mentioned seeing Liam playing with Odetta in Vicar St, Dublin in 2006. Funny they’re both gone now.

  3. Ring them bells, there’s a new robust energy among the angels! I still enjoy Liam’s segment on Dylan’s “No Direction Home” DVD and I will do my best to make him proud as I sing “Auld Lang Syne” this New Year’s Eve.
