I probably would never make comments about Clinton's performances on here.
I can hear him, and do, many times a month. We IM chat almost daily, and meet for pints often enough to make the makers of Guinness and Alexander Keith's comfortably well off.
I post this only because I care. Or I want to embarass the hell out of Clinton, one or the other. ;)
He has a great voice, and like Mick said, he plays with his heart.
His style, nor his attitude, changes depending on the crowd of the venue, or lack thereof. Last night, again as Mick said, is a restaurant that has an 'Irish' theme. The crowd that goes there, for the most part, doesn't know the difference between a shanty and a story ballad. Clinton played that room no differently than he played the Kildare house the night before, which has a more 'enlightened' crowd which enjoys the music.
To me, that is the true sign of a person who loves what they are doing. If you ever find yourself in the Windsor area, come on out and give a listen.
Clinton keeps an updated list of gigs on his website.
