THE popularity of the Dubliners’ music is such that tribute band Seven Drunken Nights is out on a year-long tour with its story of Ireland’s folk legends.
Several of the nine scheduled performances in the south and west have now been postponed. Contact your local venue for details.
Seven Drunken Nights – The Story of The Dubliners, takes its audience on a musical journey through the career of Ireland’s favourite sons – Ronnie Drew, Luke Kelly, Barney McKenna, Ciaran Bourke and John Sheahan – as they rose to fame as Ireland’s legendary folk band. From their roots in O’Donoghue’s Pub in Dublin, the show features all the highlights of an amazing fifty-year career, capturing the spirit of the band that took the world by storm.
The tour was due to stop at Swindon Wyvern on 31st March. In April it’s at Poole Lighthouse on 18th and Portsmouth King’s Theatre on 22nd. It’s back in the south on 16th May at Weymouth Pavilion, 26th July at Bristol Hippodrome and 26th October at Torquay’s Princes Theatre.
