The Clancy Tradition 

click to enlarge clancytradition.jpg
December 1. In the 1950s, Ireland’s Clancy family formed a ceili band to play local concerts and country dances, and by 1960 brothers Pat, Eugene, and Brendan Clancy had left to tour the US as the Irish Ramblers, playing Gerde’s Folk City and Carnegie Hall and releasing the acclaimed The Patriot Game. Today, Eugene (vocals, guitar) and Pat (piano, accordion) co-lead the Clancy Tradition, which also includes Eugene’s daughter Rosemary (fiddle, mandolin) and son John (bass), Pat’s daughter Liadain (vocals), and family friend Mike Melanophy (button accordion). Here, the group returns to the Towne Crier Cafe, the site of its ebullient 1999 live album. (Jewmongous’s “Holiday Comedy Songfest” arrives December 15; Mitch Woods and His Rocket 88s bring the boogie woogie December 22.) 8pm. $20. Pawling. (845) 855-1300.
