Folk Music

Many people, even folk music fans are unaware that Irish Folk music was a HUGE influence on American folk music. Bob Dylan specifically mentions Liam Clancy in an interview about folk music. Here is one of his best songs, used as the title theme in the movie "Patriot Games" based on the Tom Clancy novel. Tommy Makem and Luke Kelly (Dubliners) were also important.
