Donal Clancy
There was a lot of giddiness with anticipation when Donal Clancy came to the series first a few years ago.  This was someone I had grown to know well, someone who had grown into the footsteps of his famous father, Liam and was comfortable now putting his own stamp on that legacy.  

Anyone who listens to A Celtic Sojourn will know what a fan of Liam's singing I am.   Well, Donal, known for so many years as an instrumentalist/accompanist is coming back, and for a lovely afternoon concert.  Don't miss this one.  

With a distinctive style, store of songs, and interpretative chops, you can clearly hear the genes and the poetic influences of the family he grew up in.  Honestly, this will be just a lovely night of singing, stories, and tunes.  And of course, as a guitarist, playing tunes, he is second to none.  

Below is a really well-done mini-documentary/interview from Donal.  Songs and the story of his life in music to date.

The Burren Backroom series is now well established as one of the most sought-after boutique series of trad presentation in the world.  It has already created already dozens of memorable, intimate, informal presentations held in a truly atmospheric space which was founded by well-known traditional musicians Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts.  

Hosted by Brian O'Donovan of A Celtic Sojourn on WGBH radio, these gatherings feature core performers from many aspects of traditional music as well as special guests, and conversations around the music.  As is the custom of the Burren, it is anticipated informal and dynamic post concert sessions will be a feature.

Ticket prices vary and there is a $5 discount for WGBH Members.  If you are a member, send an e-mail to and we will send you the code.

Seating is VERY limited and these events have been selling out, so get your tickets today!
