Clary enjoys an eclectic career encompassing television, stage, film, radio, recordings and numerous publications. The Encyclopaedia of Music in Canada has recognized his contribution to Maritime folklore studies and his ongoing research into the traditional music of the Maritime provinces. He is best known for his continuing work with the collection of his late mentor, Dr. Helen Creighton.
Over his long career Clary has released several recordings and, through his publisher, Nimbus, has written several books including a biography of Dr. Creighton that has just been re-released in e-book form and, his most recent title: Witchcraft: Tales, Beliefs and Superstitions from the Maritimes.
Clary's presentations always include several songs and tales from the area in which he is performing so Sunday's audience can expect some lore and traditional music from the Eastern Shore.
Reviews of Clary’s work have been consistent throughout the years and The Halifax Mail Star wrote -“... he is the acknowledged master of one of the richest repertoires in Canada.”
