Rest In Peace, Liam Clancy

Liam Clancy passed away today at the age of 74.

I have many fond memories of seeing him perform at Mechanics Hall with Tommy Makem and his brothers. He would always play Worcester sometime around St. Patrick's Day, and my family would sit in the balcony over the stage. Every show was amazing- full of stories, jokes, and sing-a-longs. Liam was gifted with one of the greatest voices to ever grace a stage, and he will be missed.

May he rest in peace.

Here he is with Tommy Makem performing one of my favorite songs:

They all had such a gift and will be missed.
We're lucky their music lives on.
You were fortunate to hear them in person.
