“Growing up, I was always struck by the electricity generated by a concert given by The Dubliners. Looking back, I can see clearly that the group was exceptional not only because of the individual strength of the performers but that combined, they were a force of nature.
That energy and excitement, coupled with the unbridled joy of a Dubliners’ audience, made for a night’s entertainment that felt more like a party in full swing where the hosts and guests were in perfect harmony.
In the years since my father passed away, I’ve come to enjoy listening back over his musical legacy. The wealth of material has reawakened a sense of pride and deep appreciation.
The night will be made by a mix of folk and other musical influences that will go towards creating a performance that, hopefully, the audience can enjoy as much as we will. ” – Phelim Drew
