The young dubliners

  • This event has passed.

After thirty years as one of the world’s leading Celtic Rock bands, The Young  Dubliners have begun work on their tenth studio album while still maintaining  their busy tour schedule.

Having survived the crushing impact of the lockdown on their industry they  have returned stronger than ever and determined to bring their fusion of  Celtic and rock music to as many people as they can.

The band is Keith Roberts (vocals / guitar), Chas Waltz (Violin, keys, vocals),  Justin Pecot (guitar, vocals), Dave Ingraham (drums) and Ethan Jones (bass  guitar)

With a solid line up, a new batch of songs and the help of their new agency,  Skyline, The YD are excited to bring live music back into festivals, theaters and  clubs around the world.

“We want to be the band who reminds the world how important a good gig can  be to our sanity after what we’ve all been through” says Roberts.

For only the second time the band is looking to its fans to finance the album  instead of a traditional record company. “The business has changed so much  over our lifetime that it no longer makes sense for us to take money from a  label and then owe it all back” adds Roberts. “Making all our supporters co  producers is a far more rewarding way to make a record and allows us to  maintain control all the way”.  The band have teamed up with long time  producer, Irish born Tim Boland, and will begin recording in the coming  months.

The Young Dubliners have released nine albums to date. The set on the  upcoming dates will draw from all their albums and include unreleased new  material.

In recent years the Young Dubs have appeared twice on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel  Live, had songs featured in TV shows (Sons Of Anarchy, Human Target) and  toured extensively as a headliner and as the opener for such a diverse list of  artists as Collective Soul, Jethro Tull, Johnny Lang, Los Lobos, Chris Isaak and  many more.

Although the Young Dubliners sound is most commonly called ‘Celtic Rock’,  that label can often be misleading. The Irish influence is certainly there, but  it’s not the only influence that bursts through on their albums or live shows.

After all, several of the band members have no Irish roots of any kind. “That  was always the idea”, explains Roberts “The sound was intended to be a hybrid  because we all come from different backgrounds. Even though I am from  Ireland, a lot of the music I listened to growing up wasn’t Irish at all, but when  I got here, I got homesick and developed a new appreciation for Irish Music. In  truth the Celtic riffs can just as easily come from the American band members.  Everyone writes now so you never know what you’ll end up with”

Food & Bar: A limited food menu of pizza and fries as well as our full bar will be available before and during the show. If you would like to eat before the show, we encourage you to make a dinner reservation by going to Resy.
