Whenever and wherever the Clancy Clan collect there is sure to be music — and wherever there is music — they sing, as that is their way of life. Add to this the warmth of each individual of the clan — and you would sing too.
This collection of Irish Folk Airs, is the second of two sing-songs which started with Tradition #2060 "AT HOME WITH THE CLANCY BROTHERS AND TOMMY MAKEM AND THEIR FAMILIES" and features the singing of Peg, Bobby, Tom, Patrick, Liam Clancy and Tommy Makem and his mother, Sarah.
Though all of the songs were originally sung unaccompanied, the guitar, harmonica, tin whistle, and Irish harp are now widely used. Often in the evening around the fire, the grown-ups would lead in a song while the children would join in on the chorus. Out of this atmosphere of freshness and beauty, the happy mornings, the wintry evenings, the loves and tragedies of the people, has come a great wealth of songs and music, as presented in this latest offering by the Clancy Brothers, Tommy Makem and their families.
