Event Details


The Clancy Tradition is a multi-generational family band with roots dating back to 1950s Ireland, where members of the Clancy family played at country dances and concerts throughout Ireland. Those legendary parties of the old country would carry on in the new world, when in 1960, the three brothers Pat, Eugene and Brendan Clancy departed for the United States and reformed as The Irish Ramblers, touring the States and recording an album “The Patriot Game” for Elektra Records. Today the musical legacy lives on in the next generation, with The Clancy Tradition ft. Eugene Clancy on guitar and vocals, Rosemary Clancy on fiddle and mandolin, Mike Melanophy on button accordion, John Clancy on bass and Brendan Dolan on piano. The ensemble’s sound is rooted in the traditional Irish style, although the groups’ repertoire is peppered with French waltzes, American folk songs and Scottish influences.

Ashurst Academy of Irish Dance is an award-winning group of dancers led by theformer leads of Riverdance & Lord of the Dance, Christina & Craig Ashurst. These dancers thrill audiences through their joyous combination of learned technique and love of the art form. Based out of Newton, CT, the Academy’s goal is to provide the highest quality instruction while also stressing the importance of fun and fitness, all of which is evident in their invigorating performances.

The media sponsor for this event is WFUV.
