Robert Clancy

Robert Clancy formed The Broken Consort in 1982, and for 12 months performed and recorded with many Australian musicians including Gerald English, Catherine Finnis, Winsome Evans and John O'Donnell. He was given special support by Musica Viva, the ABC and 2MBS-FM. 

In 1986 he developed a neuro-physiological condition in the right hand called focal dystonia which brought to an end his concert career. He continues his work as a computer programmer and is making a return to the stage, much to everyone's delight.

In recent years he has performed with Margeurite Montes, playing classical guitar with a repertoire that is entirely Spanish and South American.
