Rose Clancy Trio; with special guest John Clancy

Cape Cod based fiddler Rose Clancy 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. Her trio features Max Cohen on vocals and guitar with John Alden on vocals and upright bass. Rose’s brother John Clancy will make a guest appearance.

The Trio pays tribute to its origins through a special blend of contemporary and traditional tunes and songs, infused with influences from Ireland, Scotland, Cape Breton and New England.

“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
Rose’s playing is elegant. There’s a purity and sophistication in her playing that really
sets her apart”
Stephen Russell, Actor, Author and Producer, Wellfleet, MA
