When The Dublin Legends take the stage, within minutes you imagine yourself in an Irish pub. The beating heart of Irish towns and villages, where tales of tough sea dogs, fiery romances and unhappy loves go around over a pint of Guinness or a good glass of whiskey. No band can set that authentic and infectious atmosphere with as much spirit as the foursome of Seán Cannon, Gerry O'Connor, Shay Kavanagh and Paul Watchorn.
True folk fans may know the musicians better under the legendary name 'The Dubliners'. That name disappeared when Dubliners frontman John Sheahan quit in 2012, but the legend remained! As did the insanely delicious pub atmosphere, which drags listeners stomping and clapping along through uplifting songs and melancholic ballads.
The Dublin Legends bring Irish folk as Irish folk is meant to be. Pure and raw from the heart. They don't need shiny sets and special effects to impress; good Folk carries itself. And the gifted foursome proves that time and again as they rock the room with their enthusiasm and rhythm. Molly Mallone', 'Whiskey in the Jar', Seven Drunken Nights, The Irish Rover and 'Dirty Old Town' are all classics that you have to sing along with.
Ten years after the famous Dubliners' 50th anniversary, that famous name may be history, but the band has not lost a fraction of its unrivalled style. Folk with capital letters! THE DUBLIN LEGENDS - Formerly The Dubliners.
