Fantastic Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem footage

By Kenneth Rainey. Filed under: TweedBlog, video.

This is some of the best footage I’ve seen of the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, in all their Aran Sweater-clad glory, culled from one of their appearances on Pete Seeger’s Rainbow Quest program. The song is the Woman from Wexford, a charming song about a woman who wishes to kill her husband.
