This hourlong documentary charts the storied career of Clancy brothers Tom, Pat and Liam, who, along with their friend Tommy Makem, formed a musical quartet that ignited renewed interest in Irish and traditional folk music in America. Featuring interviews with the Celtic foursome and stars such as Bob Dylan, the video traces the group's influence during the 1950s and '60s, and includes clips of a reunion concert at New York City's Lincoln Center.
