12 Folk Songs in the Clancy Tradition


The great folk master, Pete Seeger, is a strong believer in the power of song. He once said that some people sing because they’re so happy they just can’t stop; some sing to keep their spirits from going five miles below hell; and some sing just to keep their courage up.*

There was a lot of singing in our house when I was growing up - at least when my father, Liam, wasn't away performing on stages around the world. I was more content to be playing my guitar, but eventually I'd contribute the odd verse or chorus with reluctance, when coaxed.

During my father's final years, I heard him refer to himself as "the last man standing" - as he was the last surviving member of The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem. After his death in 2009 and the grim silence that followed, I found that I just couldn't keep from singing these songs.
