Dublin singer-songwriter Chris Kavanagh celebrates the memory and music of Luke Kelly in this authentic show showcasing the life and songs of Ireland’s most iconic folk singer.

Luke Kelly left an indelible mark as being one of the greatest folk artists of the 20th Century and his music is widely regarded as one of Ireland's cultural treasures.

As he journeys through Luke's music Chris captures the depth and passion of the King of Balladeers, recreating the most well loved songs as well as his own compositions with a live band and projected visuals.

Dubliner and multi-instrumentalist Chris Kavanagh has been singing and playing music since he was three years old. His grandmother instilled a love of folk music in him from this tender age, with bands such as The Dubliners & The Clancy Brothers played regularly in his childhood home.

Chris and his band have performed all over Ireland as well as abroad, in countries such as the UK, Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
