THE YELLOW BITTERN is a revealing and surprising portrait of the last surviving member of The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, and the man that Bob Dylan called just the best ballad singer I d ever heard in my whole life . This intimate, confessional and highly cinematic documentary film charts the remarkable rise to fame of these devil-may-care Irish singers, from their small-town beginnings in County Tipperary in Ireland to the folk hey-day of Greenwich Village in the Sixties where they played for JFK and out-sold the Beatles. Drawing on unseen and behind-the-scenes footage of the band at their height as well as on Clancy s own personal archive, the film is a compelling look at an iconic and influential life. But, this darkly revealing portrait also goes behind the mask of the performer and delves deep into the psyche of Liam Clancy as well as his troubled personal life where the excesses of rock-and-roll found their way in to the world of folk.
