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 & 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 & many more.
In 2017 guitarist and founder, Eamonn Campbell, passed away while they were on tour in Holland.
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 & classics that the lads wanted to get down on disc: Leaving of Liverpool, Schooldays Over, Pub with No Beer, Rambling Rover, Hand Me Down My Bible and some scorching tunes from Gerry O’Connor.
This band are the REAL DEAL so make sure you join THE DUBLIN LEGENDS for a night full of songs and stories.
