Rose Clancy ~ was born in New York into an Irish musical family. Rose learned Traditional Irish Music from her father Eugene Clancy and after a successful career in New York moved to Boston to attend the North Bennett Street School where she studied violin making for three years. Upon graduating, she founded The Chatham Fiddle Company where she teaches, makes and repairs instruments. On Tuesday evenings during the summer, Rose runs a boutique concert series at the Chatham Drama Guild.
Eugene Clancy ~ originally hails from Armagh, Northern Ireland. In 1960, Eugene left Ireland with his two brothers to tour the United States as The Irish Ramblers. Eventually he settled in New York and continued the musical tradition with his children and members of his extended family known as "The Clancy Tradition" in the 1980's. Known for his guitar playing, he has performed at Carnegie Hall, Donnelly Memorial Theater, Soldiers Field, Chicago, The Gate of Horn, Usher Hall, Edinburgh, Scotland, Gerte's Folk City and the Bitter End. Gene and his wife Cecilia are residents of Chatham but still return to Ireland.
John Alden ~ upright Bass player is a talented multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, dance caller and a Cape Cod cranberry farmer. Playing the largest and the lowest pitched string instrument, John enhances the folk music by providing the rhythmic music to the group and playing essential parts of a folk song that you don't necessarily hear by providing a good feeling and steady pulse.
Max Cohen ~ an accomplished guitar player and vocalist for over 30 years has drawn accolades from critics and fans alike. He has played and tour all over the US and Canada but currently lives on Cape Cod where he is involved with the local traditional music. These days Max is accompanying Irish fiddler Rose Clancy and the Franco-American Fiddler, Donna Hebert. He is the regular accompanist of renowned folk singer Priscilla Herdman.
Clayton March ~ Clayton March leads a dual musical life as a clarinetist and an Irish fiddler. After graduating from New England Conservatory Clayton began to explore beyond classical music and realized his love of the clarinet music from Eastern Europe and the Fiddle tunes of Ireland. On clarinet he performs with the highly energetic and sometimes zany Polka Dan's Beet Box Band. He has recorded with Polka Dan as well as with The Bart Weisman Klezmer Swing Group. In 2012 Clayton recorded In Klezmer with Pianist Jacqueline Schwab. As a fiddler Clayton leads Irish sessions across the region and is a sought after teacher. He is a founder of West Bend Music in Dennis Port where he maintains a large teaching studio.
