Clancy Clements studied music (piano, trumpet, guitar) as a child in the US, explored American folk music as a teenager, and later branched out into world music, mostly Celtic and Iberian. In the late 1970s, he was influenced by the music of the group Al Tall in Valencia, Spain, where he was introduced to the Spanish guitar style and Iberian percussion.
