Let us remember the great Liam Clancy

It's not a feel-good Friday after hearing the news of the passing of the legendary Liam Clancy, aged 74. Thanks to Mairtin de Cogain for the tip.

Along with his brothers and singer Tommy Makem, he helped revive traditional Irish music worldwide during the 1960s, making it possible for us to enjoy this music today. He will be deeply missed; please remember his family, including his brilliant musician son Donal in your thoughts.

Here they are playing Old Orange Flute.
