The Pipering of Willie Clancy
Volumn One

Willie Clancy
Willie Clancy of Miltown Malbay was a repository of the music and lore of west Clare, and the music that he learned in his home was a link with the great musicians of the last century. He shared it generously and had an inestimable influence on the present generation. This record gives an excellent insight into his piping style and repertory. Pipers and non-pipers will all delight in it.
