The Dublin Legends, Ralph McTell & Stockton’s Wing @ TradFest Temple Bar
Following the sudden death of founding member Barney McKenna in 2012 and John Sheahans’ decision to retire it was agreed that The Dubliners would come to an end as a touring band. Thus, The Dublin Legends was born. Members Sean Cannon, Paul Watchorn, Gerry O’Connor and Shay Kavanagh have over 100 years of performing experience between them, while Sean was the lead singer with The Dubliners for over three decades. Expect classic songs and ballads known the world over; ‘Whiskey in The Jar’, ‘Dirty Old Town’, ‘The Wild Rover’ and ‘Seven Drunken Nights’ to name but a few. Over the past eight years the band have continued the legacy of The Dubliners by packing their bags and touring far and wide, playing concerts to a whole new generation of Irish music fans.
