Irish folk legends to perform at the Pav


Geraint Jones

ONE of Ireland’s most celebrated music acts is on its way to Rhyl for a night of superb folk.

The Dubliners have entertained across the globe for 50 years, and they will continue their impressive run when they play at the Pavilion Theatre on Wednesday, February 20.

2012 proved a mixed year for the band, who scooped Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and played a sell out UK tour.

However, they suffered a body blow when founder member “Banjo” Barney McKenna passed away.

Understandably, this sad event left the rest of the group pondering their futures together.

Happily, the current line up of Sean Cannon, Eamonn Campbell, Patsy Watchorn and Gerry O’Connor decided to continue the legacy set by Ronnie Drew, Luke Kelly, Ciaran Bourke, Barney McKenna and John Sheahan way back in 1962.

With decades of musical experience under their belts, these fine musicians are at the peak of their powers, and boast a set list packed with classic tunes.

Fans will hear all the favourite songs and ballads from the legendary group’s back catalogue, including Whiskey in the Jar, The Wild Rover, Seven Drunken Nights, Black Velvet Band and The Irish Rover.

Now is the time to book a seat for what is sure to be a fantastic night out in the company an Irish national institution.

Tickets are £19.50 and £18 (concessions). To book, call the Pavilion Theatre box office on 01745 330 000, or logo on to
