Formerly of The Dubliners

Featuring: Sean Cannon, Gerry OConnor, Paul Watchorn & Shay Kavanagh

Sean Cannon, Gerry OConnor, Paul Watchorn & Shay Kavanagh are all true legends of the Irish Folk music scene. Sean & Eamonn were members of iconic Folk Group The Dubliners for close to 30 years while Gerry joined them for the final part of their 50th Anniversary Tour. He was a member of the famous Irish Folk Rock band, Four Men & A Dog and has played with everyone from Sharon Shannon to Shane MacGowan and has also toured with Blues Rock guitar legend Joe Bonamassa. Paul Watchorn, one of the best 5 string banjo players in Ireland, toured the world as a member of Derek Warfields Sons Of Erin for many years. During the bands 2017 tour of Holland Eamonn took ill and died a short while after the tour. Shay Kavanagh who had been filling in for Eamonn during previous tours came in to help out. Shay has worked with Mary Black, The Dublin City Ramblers & The Furey Brothers
In 2012 the Legendary Irish Folk group THE DUBLINERS celebrated 50 glorious years 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 concert tour of the UK, the highlight of which was a magical night at The Royal Albert Hall in London.
Sadly, however, they subsequently suffered a body blow with the sudden tragic death of founding member Banjo Barney McKenna. Quite naturally this meant that the remaining members chose to sit down and decide upon the bands future. John Sheahan, after 48 years of touring, decided it was time to step off the tour bus and it was agreed that The Dubliners, as a touring band, would come to an end. THE DUBLIN LEGENDS were born.
THE DUBLIN LEGENDS will continue the legacy started by Ronnie Drew, Luke Kelly, Ciaran Bourke, Barney McKenna & John Sheahan back in Dublin 1962. As Barney himself said Its Too Late To Stop Now.
The Lads are looking forward to entertaining and meeting their old friends & fans all over the globe and will continue to play all the classic songs and ballads known the world over; Whiskey in The Jar, Dirty Old Town, The Wild Rover, Seven Drunken Nights, The Rare Auld Times, Finnegans Wake, Molly Malone, The Monto, Hand Me Down Me Bible, The Irish Rover, Black Velvet Band and many, many more.
