Traditional Irish Music
The world famous Willie Clancy Week is in full flow so in honor of this great festival we thought we would post this documentary again. If you are not already en route to the west Ireland town of Miltown Malbay then enjoy this sample of what is involved. Donal Dineen visits the Willie Clancy Week in Miltown Malbay, Co.Clare to meet and chat with attendees. Filmed by Myles O'Reilly.

Held annually since 1973 in memory of the piper Willie Clancy, the Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy is Ireland's largest traditional music summer school. During the week, students from every part of the world attend daily classes taught by experts in Irish music and dance. In addition, a full program of lectures, recitals, dances (céilithe) and exhibitions are run by the summer school. If it is your first time going to the 'Willie Week' don't be afraid to join in the dancing or music: that's what it's all about!
