We are delighted to be presenting our Tuesday Night concerts at the fabulous Chatham Drama Guild, 134 Crowell Road, Chatham, MA. Concerts will be held through September 10th at 7:30 pm. Father/Daughter duo, Rose and Gene Clancy anchor the concerts singing Celtic songs and playing fiddle tunes with a bit of Irish banter added in for good measure.

A truly unique evening of music on Cape Cod awaits you… a summer tradition!

As is our custom, we will enjoy Cecilia’s Irish Tea and Eugene’s Brown Bread after the show and have a bit of a chat with concert goers.

About the Performers….

Cape Cod based fiddler Rose Clancy is a much respected, high energy musician playing fiddle, mandolin and banjo at concerts and festivals throughout the Northeast while sharing the stage with some of the greatest traditional performers. Clancy’s unique fiddle style embraces, Northern Irish, Scottish, Cape Breton and some French-Canadian influences. Rose carries forward the music played by multiple generations of her family with roots dating back to 1950s Ireland, where members of the Clancy family played at country dances and concerts throughout Ireland. Rose learned Traditional Music from her Father, Eugene Clancy and began her musical career at an early age performing with her family’s musical group, The Clancy Tradition. Rose has performed at Gaelic Roots, Boston College, the South Shore Conservatory, Roots and Branches with Robbie O’Connell and at The Burren Backroom, with Jacqueline Schwab. She has released several CDs with The Clancy Tradition and a solo CD with pianist Brendan Dolan.

“Lovely, energetic music played without pretension”. Daniel Neely, The Irish Echo ‘Powerful fiddling from an Irish American who also knows the Scottish and Cape Breton traditions” Alex Monaghan, Folkworld.

Eugene Clancy originally hails from Armagh, Northern Ireland. In 1960 he left Ireland with his two brothers to tour the United States as The Irish Ramblers. Eventually, he settled in New York and continued the musical tradition with his children and members of his extended family known as “The Clancy Tradition” in the 1980’s. Known for his guitar playing, he has performed at Carnegie Hall, Donnelly Memorial Theater, Soldiers Field, Chicago, The Gate of Horn, Usher Hall, Edinburgh, Scotland, Gertys Folk City & the Bitter End.

Max Cohen, a virtuoso finger style guitarist who also possesses a brilliantly emotive voice, Max has been playing and writing for more than thirty years. His musicianship has drawn accolades from critics and fans alike. As a performer, his attention to detail is what truly distinguishes him, as his playing is characterized by technical precision and exquisite tone. Max has played and toured all over the US and Canada. but currently he is living on Cape Cod where he is involved with the local traditional music scene. These days Max is accompanying the likes of fiddler Rose Clancy, as well as Franco American fiddler Donna Hebert. Max is also the regular accompanist of renowned folk singer Priscilla Herdman, and he plays with the Martha’s Vineyard based group The Misfits of Avalon.

John Alden, upright bass player is a talented multi-instrumentalist, singer, dance caller and a Cape Cod cranberry farmer. Playing the largest and the lowest pitched string instrument, John enhances the folk music by providing the rhythmic music to the group and playing essential parts of a folk song that you don’t necessarily hear by providing a good feeling and steady pulse.
