Donal Clancy, son of the late Liam Clancy, will be performing in the Dunamaise Arts Centre in Portlaoise on Saturday June 8.
An acclaimed guitarist, singer and performer, Dónal has contributed to albums and tours with Riverdance fiddler Eileen Ivers, The Chieftains, Irish-American super-group Solas, Danú. In 2006 he 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, Liam (the last remaining member of The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem), Dónal focused attention on the family repertoire of songs he grew up with, keeping the Clancy tradition alive with his solo performances. Dónal’s latest release Songs of a Roving Blade has been received with rave reviews.
