Makem & Clancy

Strand Theatre, Saturday June 3rd, 8pm, €20
Rory Makem and Donal Clancy carry on the musical legacy, stories and songs of their legendary fathers, Tommy Makem and Liam Clancy. Rory and Donal will be joined on stage with Donnchadh Gough (Bodhran) and Brendan Clancy (fiddle/mandolin).

Dónal Clancy is an acclaimed guitarist, singer and performer. Dónal grew up in a household and community steeped in music. He spent his early childhood in Canada and the US before his family settled back in An Rinn, Co.Waterford. His father gave him his first guitar at the age of eight and he was playing professionally by his early teens. Dónal performed and recorded albums with his Dad Liam and cousin Robbie O’Connell for many years touring across the Globe.  Dónal co-founded the group Danú, one of the most successful Irish bands today. In 2006 her released his debut solo guitar album ‘Close To Home’ which The Boston Globe dubbed “a sweet masterpiece of melodic grace and riveting groove”. After the death of his father he began to focus his attention on the family repertoire of songs that he grew up with, while keeping the Clancy tradition alive with his solo performances.

Rory Makem is a seasoned performer with over 25 years on the road, and he has toured extensively with The Makem and Spain Brothers. He toured and played guitar with his father, the legendary Tommy Makem for 17 years. He has entertained countless sold-out venues, festivals, and theatres throughout the United States, Canada, England, Scotland and Ireland. Rory captivates audiences with his skilled musicianship, his charisma and passion for the songs, his extensive knowledge of poetry and history, and his humor.The love of song runs deep in the family. Continuing a legacy handed down from his grandmother, the seminal folk singer Sarah Makem, Rory pulls the songs of the sailors, the labourers, the lovers, the fighters and the land from the pages of history and breathes life into them. An adept interpreter of folk songs, he masterfully accompanies himself on guitar, banjo, mandolin or bouzouki. Throughout their individual pursuits, the latter-day Makem and Clancy have always sung the praises of their forebears, and in 2016 finally joined forces as a duo to carry on the legacies of The Clancy Brothers and the original Makem and Clancy.

This will be a magical night to remember!
