Willie Clancy Summer School

Hello from Ireland!
The Willie Clancy Summer School in Miltown Malbay is going smashingly. Zoë is studying fiddle with Brendan McGlinchy (I'll be checking that spelling!) and we have listened to performances by Maurice Lennon, Tommy Peoples, and Martin Hayes, among many. We're already having a blast in the sessions (sesiuns)around West Clare, including a most memorable night at O'Connors Pub in Doolin. The craic is mighty.
For all you movie buffs, Jeremy Irons is here taking fiddle lessons, too. Hmmm...
Stay tuned for some pictures, and we'll be back to the USA in time for the Glasgow Lands Scottish Festival at Look Park, Northampton, Massachusetts.
Slainte!
