I guess you could call me an obsessed Clancy Brothers fan. I'm in the process of trying to collect all their lps and old souvernirs, etc. Anyway I'm making a Clancy Bros. database and was wondering if anybody had old Clancy Bros. setlists from the 1960's-80's. This would be great if anybody did. Please post or e-mail irishonthenet@netscape.net

No set list but I'll be interested in seeing how you do. I'm a big Clancy Brothers fan myself. Best of luck with your project and do keep me posted. Neil

Cowboy..
I would recommend you sought a far better exponent of Irish music.. i.e. one not packed with sentimental gunge... check out Kelly's Hero's ... a far better band and far worth listening to..

People have a right to like who they like. And the Clancys gave a lot to Irish music.

G'day ceilidhcowboy,

I must agree with TheOldMole, The Clancys were in there early, before any fashionable folk revival, without any mass of other bands to copy and emulate. I picked up a CD version of the old Tradition LP The Lark in the Morning ... expecting not better than something some publicity flack had subtitled Liam Clancy, Tommy Makem and Friends ... and found a wonderful collection of songs from Diane Hamilton's 1955 field recording trip, the story of Liam and Tommy's awakenings into their song culture and history - and a swag of wonderful traditional singers that relate far more to my own Australian heritage than anything from any modern "Irish Revival" band.

I still have fond memories of hearing the the Clancy Brothers perform in Sydney around 1963 and experiencing the sheer joy they brought to their music and the deep Irish resonance with the Australian-Irish audience ... free from the political rancour that saturates so much modern Irish material.

regards,

Bob Bolton

I have a TON of their stuff but don't want to duplicate efforts, how about you post what you get and I'll see what I can add? Say, in about a week?

Musicman - Yeah, TM has started a folk music school in Armagh, but he has continued performing all along. We were able book him as a pick-up date here in Tallahassee a couple of years ago. Great music, craic and chat. While relaxing after the show, he told the story of how they got started in the village. It was a bit of a lark, and nobody was more surprised at the audience response than the lads themselves. There was only two then, maybe Tommy and Liam, but the rest, as they say, is history.

Ceilidhcowboy - There have been several threads here dealing with different aspects of the CB/TM contributions to what is now called the folk-music revival. Some of them may contain info pertinent to your request. You might find them worth checking.
