Liam Clancy Interview this Sat. 3 pm

Liam Clancy

We'll paint the KALW airwaves green this Saturday 3 pm on Folk Music & Beyond--a celebration of  St. Patrick's a day early with lots of Irish music plus an encore broadcast with the late Liam Clancy, founding member of the renowned Clancy Brothers.  Liam Clancy and his brothers are credited with popularizing Irish traditional music and introducing it to American audiences in the 1960's.  Clancy recalled those wild times, dodging souvenir-hunting fans, and hanging out with poet Maya Angelou.
