The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem

Clancy Brothers' Liam - the last man standing


The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem

Entitled “Liam Clancy & Friends – Live at the Bitter End” on the RTE label, it proves that Liam never really stands alone, but is a magnet for music lovers and performers where ever and when ever he appears at festivals or folk clubs.

It is very much a tour d’horizon with Liam songs old and new and in-between spanning his august career with his brothers, Makem, nephew Robbie O’Connell and son Donal Clancy and his long list of friends in the music business. 

Also appearing on the CD are Tom Paxton, Eric Bibb (what a voice!), Gemma Hayes, Daire Bracken, Donal Clancy, Tom Doorley, Mary Rafferty, Fionn Regan, Kevin Evans, Paul Grant, Seth Faber and, in classic Pogues, form Shane MacGowan for some memorable duets.

You’ll have to hunt this one down and be mindful of the format (NTSC or PAL) if you want to view in the U.S., though the review copy I received worked fine in my DVD player as newer equipment and computers bridge the digital divide for all regions. 

Try DARA Records or visit www.essentialirish.com since it doesn’t appear on the RTE show website for some reason.
