Music of Ireland - Volume 2: Willie Clancy Summer School 1987
"The Willie Clancy Summer School in County Clare draws thousands of musicians, singers and dancers from around the world for a week of classes, concerts and non-stop sessions of traditional Irish music. For the first time the school - its unique curriculum and students - has been filmed and preserved. From morning 'til night the concert halls, classrooms, streets and pubs of Milltown Malbay are filled with novice and professional musicians aged eighty to eight. It's a feast of Irish music featuring some of Ireland's best dancers and musicians including Micho Russell, Paddy Keenan, Kevin Glackin, Junior Crehan, John Kelly, Ronan Browne, Nora Cleary, Tara Diamond, Johnny O'Leary, Tommy Kearney, Tom Lenihan, Con O'Drisceoil. You'll be charmed by the conversation and you'll revel in the lush countryside and the spectacular seacoast of County Clare." Posted Youtube on the 23rd of April 2013 by Patrick D'Arcy.
