Willie Keane Memorial Weekend: About Willie Keane

about willie

Frank Whelan, Chair of Fleadh Nua, Ennis, speaks about Willie Keane.
"Set dancing brought the music to life.  It would be unthinkable to have music without dancing."  "Willie Keane brought the art of set dancing to a new level and he was also instrumental in bringing the Clare style to a national audience."

Joe Hurley, local historian. "... his entrance into a lounge bar made heads turn and brought a hush to the crowd now gripped with feelings of eager expectation."  "Willie... drummed out his battering rhythms to the cheers and applause of all present."

Mick Mulkerrin, Set Dancing and Sean Nos teacher. "He was an interesting, humble and gracious man who understood music and knew how to interpret that music with this feet."
