DUDLEY BOROUGH HALLS
GREAT LIVE ENTERTAINMENT AND EVENTS IN DUDLEY, STOURBRIDGE AND HALESOWEN
The Dublin Legends (formerly of The Dubliners)
This show has been rescheduled from Tuesday 19 May 2020. All original tickets remain valid for the new date.
Following the sudden death of founding member Barney McKenna in 2012 and John Sheahans' decision to retire it was agreed that The Dubliners, as a touring band, would come to an end and THE DUBLIN LEGENDS were born.
THE DUBLIN LEGENDS - Sean Cannon, Paul Watchorn, Gerry O'Connor and Shay Kavanagh - have over 100 years of performing experience between them and Sean was the lead singer with The Dubliners for over 30 of them! They will, of course, continue to play all the classic songs and ballads known the world over; Whiskey in The Jar, Dirty Old Town, The Wild Rover, Seven Drunken Nights, The Rare Auld Times, Molly Malone, The Irish Rover, Black Velvet Band and many more.
In 2017 guitarist and founder, Eamonn Campbell, passed away while they were on tour in Holland. Even though he had been in poor health it was still a massive shock. The lads asked an old friend, Shay Kavanagh, if he would like to come on the road with them and, thankfully, Shay readily agreed. Shay is a stalwart of the Irish Folk Music scene. He was a founding member of General Humbert with the great Mary Black and has played with The Dublin City Ramblers for many years.
DUDLEY TOWN HALL
Thursday 27 May - 7.30pm
It was Eamonn's wish that the band continue touring and finish off recording the album they had been working on. This is a follow-up to "The Dublin Sessions" which featured 16 newly recorded tracks and included some old favourites and classics that the lads wanted to get down on disc… The Leaving of Liverpool, Schooldays Over, Pub with No Beer, Rambling Rover, Hand Me Down My Bible and some scorching tunes from Gerry O'Connor: Billy in The Low Ground / The Temperance Reel.
In the past seven years the band have continued the legacy of The Dubliners by travelling far and wide playing concerts to a whole new generation of Irish music fans. They have wowed audiences in Iceland, Norway, Finland, The Faroe Islands, Sweden, Holland, Belgium, France, Italy, Spain, Austria, Switzerland and all over England, Scotland and Wales.
This band are the REAL DEAL so make sure you join THE DUBLIN LEGENDS on their 2020 UK Tour for a night full of songs and stories and the odd pint of Guinness!
