Dónal Clancy & Pipers Union formed in 2013 when longtime musical associates, David Power and Ciarán Somers, asked their old friend, Dónal Clancy, to join them in concert at The Dungarvan Maritime Festival in Co.Waterford, Ireland. What started out as a collaboration between two separate acts quickly evolved into a tight-knit trio with Dónal bringing his guitar and cittern to the duo's instrumental sets, while David and Ciarán add weight and texture to Dónal's songs with the sounds of uilleann pipes, flute, penny-whistle, fiddle and additional vocals. Together, they create an aural landscape that belies the sum of its parts as they treat their audience to an assortment of traditional and contemporary styles, from rousing ballads and soft love songs, to lively dance tunes and haunting airs - all of which are presented with talent, flair and style.
