I missed this thread when it was current; and I refresh it now, though sadly, because I feel personally obligated to add my own condolence and tribute to those so finely expressed above. This was a fine man and songman, of a grand singing family, his loss most sorely to be grieved. Thank God we have had the gift of him, and of them; and, too, that the next generation of Clancys & of Makems carry on the work. Fare thee well Bobby Clancy. With Tom and Paddy have a wee drop of the "holy water" for us would ye. Until we meet again.

I will present a tribute to Bobby Clancy on my radio program THE SUNDAY SESSION that airs on WFDU-FM in Teaneck, NJ. 89.1FM if you are in the NYC area or you can listen in via the internet at www.wfdu.fm . The program airs at 9am Eastern Time on 9/15.

We will feature recordings of Bobby and his sister Peggy, Bobby with the Clancy Brothers, and some of Bobby's solo work. We will also hear the beautiful recording of Kisses Sweeter Than Wine that he recorded with Aoife as well as other recordings he made with his children.

The joy he found in music can be heard in his voice. He will be missed.

Very sorry to hear about Bobby.

I was starting to interview Aoife a few weeks back when she returned to Ireland. One of the topics we touched on was her musical relationship with her father. She told me they had recorded together. Glad she had a chance to see him.

All the best,
Dan

Such a loss. I love the Clanceys (& Tommy Makem). When I was first married, my father-in-law,(a Scotsman! - who loves all Celtic music)gave me some Clancy albums. I used to wash the dishes by their rousing music.

That is indeed a photo of Bobby at the occasion of his marriage.

I, too, had several opportunities to meet (and sing!) with Bobby. A rare, generous man in every way. He is sadly missed.

On Liam's website is a photo tribute to Bobby, clickable from the front page. (www.liamclancy.com)

This is very hard news. A fine gentleman and entertainer. I had the opportunity to speak with him at several of his shows and he was a wonderful interview.

I mentioned in the get well thread that his version of "Lili Marlene" was the most poignant I'd heard - find it if you can.

He leaves daughter Aoife and son Finbarr, both fine musicians, and capable bearers of the torch.

A sad, sad day, but we will remember him well.

    But since it falls unto my lot,
    That I should rise and you should not,
    I'll gently rise and softly call,
    Good night, and joy be with you all.

Very sorry to hear this. I have been listening to his and his brother's music for years. We will all be poorer for his loss.

Bobby was a brother...chronologically it went Paddy, Tom, Bobby and Liam being the youngest. Peg was their sister.

Robbie O'Connell is their nephew Aofie and Finbar are Bobby's children and Donal is Liam's son. There are also 3 performing Makem Brothers (sons of Tommy Makem).

Quite a legacy.

Saw him with the boys a few years ago in concert. I believe (not sure) that it was a photograph of Peg and Bobby Clancy's marriage that illustrated the song Mari's Weddin' in The Clancy brothers' Songbook. R.I.P.

Is this the Bobby Clancy who was the Clancy Brothers' nephew? Either way, I'm sorry, but I wondered.

I am very saddened to have to report the death of my friend Bobby Clancy. No doubt people more elequent than I will due justice to him, on this thread, as a fitting obituary. All that I can say is that his music his humour, his showmanship and his never daunted spirit we will sorely miss.
