(Formerly of The Dubliners)
Irish Folk Music at its Very Best
In 2012 The Dubliners celebrated 50 years on the road but following the sudden death of founding member Barney McKenna and John Sheehan’s’ 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 OConnor, have over 60 years of performing with The Dubliners between them and will 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 & many more. Shay Kavanagh has joined the line up following the sad passing of Eamonn Campbell in 2017.
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, Sweden, Holland, Belgium, France, Italy, Spain, Austria, and Switzerland and, of course, all over England, Scotland & Wales.
This year, 2022, sees the band celebrate the St. Patrick’s Day period with a March UK Tour. It promises to be one hell of a party! Make sure you don’t miss out!
