LISTING  A  RARE  COLLECTION  OF  THE  CLANCY  BROTHERS & TOMMY   MAKEM  RECORDINGS

The songs were collected in many different places throughout Ireland from August to December 1955. Many of the songs were recorded at the home of the Makem family in Keady, Co. Armagh. There we gathered for many an evening, often starting with just a few singers, mostly family, and ending around 2:00 A.M., the house packed to overflowing with neighbors and friends from all over the surrounding countryside. Near Beleek, Co. Fermanagh, Paddy Tunney and his family sang, danced, and told tales of Irish heroes. In Macroom, Co. Cork, I recorded in a hotel and later in the rear room of a pub. In Carrick-on-Suir, Co. Tipperary, hours were spent by the winter fire exchanging good talk and songs with the Clancys.

And all the time there was the tramping over fields and hills, along rough country roads in the long summer twilight, or wandering through meadows over stone walls to the hillside. I've watched the autumn come upon the Commeragh mountains in County Waterford and at Christmas-time the final winter light fill the sky along the coast.

Out of this atmosphere of freshness and beauty, the happy mornings, the winter evenings, the loves and tragedies of the people has come a great wealth of songs and music, from which we can give you just a few notes in this album, "The Lark in the Morning"
