In the heady atmosphere of the Village, Clancy's life was a party filled with music, sex, and McSorley's. His friendships with then-unknown artists such as Bob Dylan, Maya Angelou, and Pete Seeger form the backdrop of the charming adventures of a small-town boy making it big in the biggest of cities.
In music circles, the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem are known as the Beatles of Irish music. The band's music plays on in jukeboxes in pubs and bars, in living rooms of folk music fans, and in Irish American homes throughout the country. Liam Clancy's lively memoir captures their wild adventures on the road to fame and fortune, and brings to life a man who never lets himself off the hook for his sins, and happily views his success as a blessing.
"An endearing and lively memoir." ( Booklist, starred review)

It's a very big treat to have Liam Clancy read this himself, with his enjoyable brogue. There are short songs in between sections. His story is interesting in all parts. He grew up in a poor family and seems to remember a lot of vivid detail. He recounts how he came to the U.S. and some of the early stages of his career. His descriptiveness throughout is wonderful.
