Biographical Notes

The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem's Career Group formed in New York City (Greenwich Village) in 1956. They formed an independent record label, Tradition, and released their debut album, The Rising of the Moon, in that same year. In 1961, the group appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show and released their Columbia Records debut, A Spontaneous Performance Recording. The original group disbanded in 1970, but reunited with various members in 1975, 1984, 1993, and 1996. They also performed in 1992 for Bob Dylan for The Thirtieth Anniversary Concert Celebration.

Over the years the members of the group included Bobby Clancy [1927-2002], Finbarr Clancy (Bobby's son), Liam Clancy [1935-2009], Patrick (Paddy) Clancy [1922-1998], Tom Clancy [1927-1990], Tommy Makem [1932-2007] (until 1978), and the son of a sister of the Clancy brothers, Robbie O'Connell.
