Willie Clancy (Uillean pipes, vocals, whistle)


1. AllMusic - John Storm Roberts
County Clare is a heartland of Irish musical tradition, and that tradition was handed down to master singer/piper/flutist Willie Clancy by his father. Ireland's leading piper at the time of this classic 1967 Topic recording, he also was a fine whistle player and sang songs ranging from the Fenian ballad "Erin's Lovely Lea" to a local comic song of unknown age.
