Rory Makem & Donal Clancy played two sold out shows in Ireland in April 2019. Both shows, in Clonmel Co Tipperary and Keady Co Armagh played to full houses, to rave reviews. Following on from the success of these shows they were invited to play 2 shows in Northern Ireland in August , at the Black Box Belfast and at a Festival in Derry
They are back for an extensive Irish tour in 2022

Rory Makem and Donal Clancy carry on the musical legacy, stories and songs of their legendary fathers, Tommy Makem and Liam Clancy.

Rory Makem and Donal Clancy – the sons of, respectively, Tommy Makem and Liam Clancy – are justifiably proud of their families’ storied place in Irish music, and both had the opportunity to perform with their famous fathers over the years. Donal & Rory have also forged their own musical paths.

Rory & Donal have always sung the praises – literally – of their forebears, and in 2016 finally joined forces as a duo to carry on the legacies of The Clancy Brothers and the original Makem and Clancy, where they belted out classics like “Brennan on the Moor,” “Whistling Gypsy Rover,” “Wild Mountain Thyme” and many more, and shared plenty of stories and reminiscences with an appreciative, enthusiastic audience that happily sang along on practically every song.

Dónal Clancy is an acclaimed guitarist, singer and performer. Dónal grew up in a household and community steeped in music. He spent his early childhood in Canada and the US before his family settled back in An Rinn, Co.Waterford in 1983. His father gave him his first guitar at the age of eight and he was playing professionally by his early teens. After returning from a residency at Delaney’s Irish Pub in Hong Kong in the mid-nineties, he co-founded the group Danú but left soon after to join a trio with his father, Liam, and cousin, Robbie O’Connell.

A seasoned performer with over 25 years on the road, Rory Makem has toured extensively with The Makem and Spain Brothers and for 17 years toured and played guitar with his father, the legendary Tommy Makem. He has entertained countless sold-out venues, festivals, and theaters throughout the United States, Canada, England, Scotland and Ireland. At his best on stage, Rory captivates audiences with his skilled musicianship, his charisma and passion for the songs, his extensive knowledge of poetry and history, and his humor.
