For over 50 years, they have been true legends of the Irish folk music scene.
In 2012, The Dubliners celebrated half a century in the music business by receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and rapidly followed it up with a sell-out UK concert tour.
Following the sudden death of founding member “Banjo” Barney McKenna, the remaining members agreed that The Dubliners, as a touring band, would come to an end.
But The Dublin Legends were then born and they are set to take to the road in January. Honouring the memory of the original Dubliners, the tour is filled with old favourites, new songs and some offerings from Robert Burns.
They will play Ayr Town Hall (Jan 18), Edinburgh Queen’s Hall (Jan 19), Kilmarnock The Palace Theatre (Jan 20), Falkirk Town Hall (Jan 21), Glenrothes, Rothes Hall (Jan 22), Musselburgh Brunton Theatre (Jan 23), Dumfries Big Burns Supper Festival (Jan 24), and Arbroath The Webster Theatre (Jan 25).
