Irish Folk Music at its Very Best

d

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.

d

The Dublin Legends – Sean Cannon, Paul Watchorn, Gerry O’Connor & Shay Kavanagh – have over 100 years of performing experience between them and Sean Cannon was the lead singer with The Dubliners for over 30 of them! 

d

The Dublin Legends 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”, “The Rare Auld Times”, “Molly Malone”, “The Irish Rover”, “Black Velvet Band”, “Seven Drunken Nights” and many more.

d

Late last year the band suffered a huge loss when 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 Dublin Legends asked an old friend, Shay Kavanagh, if he would like to come on the road with them and, thankfully, Shay readily agreed. 

d

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.

d

In the past five years the band have continued on 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, and Switzerland and all over England, Scotland & Wales.

d

In 2019, the band release their third CD and second in the Dublin Sessions series. To celebrate they are doing more live shows than ever before all over Europe and nationwide across the UK.  It promises to be one hell of a party. From “The Wild Rover” to “Seven Drunken Nights” and all the Irish classics!

d

To round-off St Patrick`s week in 2019, The Dublin Legends will be making their first appearance for many years in the Coventry & Warwickshire area by performing live in concert at Bedworth Civic Hall on Saturday 23rd March as part of their `Seven Drunken Nights` tour.

d

This will be a full live concert by the Dublin Legends (formerly The Dubliners). Tickets are now on sale for this rousing St Patrick’s celebration on the Saturday night of St Patrick’s week in 2019.
