The Dublin Legends (formerly of The Dubliners)

 

 

BOOK TICKETS

Following the sudden death of founding member Barney McKenna in 2012 and John Sheahan's decision to retire, it was agreed that The Dubliners as a touring band would 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.

 

When lead guitarist Eamonn Campbell sadly passed away in 2017 the lads asked an old friend, Shay Kavanagh, if he would like to come on the road with them and Shay readily agreed. He 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.

 

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, A 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 and, of course, Seven Drunken Nights.

 

Over the past ten years the band have continued the legacy of The Dubliners by packing their bags and touring 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 as well as all over England, Scotland and Wales.

 

From Seven Drunken Nights to Whiskey in the Jar, make sure you join the boys for a pint or two on the road. They would be delighted to see you!
