Rose Clancy and Max Cohen
Cape Cod-based fiddler Rose Clancy carries forward the music played by multiple generations of her family with roots dating back to 1950s Ireland, where members of the Clancy family played at country dances and concerts throughout Ireland. She is joined by Max Cohen, guitarist and singer. The duo pays tribute to its origins through a special blend of contemporary and traditional tunes and songs, infused with influences from Ireland, Scotland, Cape Breton, and New England.
“Lovely, energetic music played without pretension”. Daniel Neely, The Irish Echo
“Powerful fiddling from an Irish American who also knows the Scottish and Cape Breton traditions” Alex Monaghan, Folkworld
Rose Clancy was born in New York into a musical family hailing from County Armagh, Ireland, an area immersed in Traditional Irish Music. Her musical career began at an early age performing with her family’s musical group, The Clancy Tradition.

Rose performs throughout the Northeast and has performed at Gaelic Roots, Boston College, at the South Shore Conservatory Roots and Branches with Robbie O’Connell, and at The Burren Backroom with Jacqueline Schwab. She has released several CDs with The Clancy Tradition and a solo CD with pianist Brendan Dolan featuring the music of Ireland, Cape Breton, and Scotland.

His musicianship has drawn accolades from critics and fans alike. As an accompanist, Max is always looking for something to engage the listener – a clever twist, an unusual chord, or a poignant harmony. As a performer, his attention to detail is what truly distinguishes him, as his playing is characterized by technical precision and exquisite tone. Max has played and toured all over the US and Canada. but currently, he is living on Cape Cod where he is involved with the local traditional music scene. These days Cohen is accompanying the likes of fiddler Rose Clancy, as well as Franco-American fiddler Donna Hebert. Max is also the regular accompanist of renowned folk singer Priscilla Herdman, and he plays with the Martha’s Vineyard-based group The Misfits of Avalon
