Innovation combined with tradition – that's a hallmark of Clancy family musicians, and it's one that guitarist Dónal Clancy is carrying forward into the 21st century. The acoustic guitar adds many colors and textures to Irish music, but there's no long history of it in Celtic tradition, as there is with the fiddle and the accordion. Dónal is one who's bringing the guitar forward to its rightful place as a strong part of Irish tradition. He has been involved with the best bands in Irish music, starting out in Clancy, O'Connell, and Clancy with his father Liam and his cousin Robbie O'Connell, helping to found the band Danu, and then moving on to become part of Eileen Ivers Band before playing guitar with one of the hottest Irish bands ever, Solas. When it was time to make a change, he found his old band Danu in need of a guitarist again, and that's still one of his main gigs when he is not performing solo. Dónal's latest album "On the Lonesome Plain" features a mix of seven vocal tracks and six guitar instrumentals.
