Tommy was so good that Bob Dylan lists him and the Clancys as large influences to him. Considering that Dylan went on to influence so may other big stars, Tommy had a big impact on the music scene. Ahh what memories!

    Tommy Makem has passed away....

    He has lived here in Dover, NH for many years. I grew up (w/ a very Irish Dad) listening to much of his music...being that I ended up moving to Dover 18 years ago I got to see him and his sons in concert many times....he popularized Irish folk music here in the states back in the 60's. kpc

    I am very sorry to hear of it. He was one of the greats. I have seen him many times. I remember when he was with the Clancy Brothers (Liam Clancy is the only one left). Some of the best music ever recorded. I have seen him in concert and at his club in Manhatten. The shame that people haven't had the same experience. He will be fondly remembered.

    How he could wear those sweaters at summer concerts...

    was a mystery to me. He and the Clancy Brothers were a great show. They had an unmistakable sound. He could make you laugh with one song, and weep with the next, and his stories sent your mind to the Emerald Isle instantly. May the road rise to meet ya, Tommy!

    and never knew he lived there. WOW.

    Stop in at the Crescent City Bistro and enjoy a rum drink from the bar in his honor!!
