About

Canon, Campbell, Watchorn & O’Connor of The Dubliners Sean Cannon, Patsy Watchorn, Eamonn Campbell & Gerry O’Connor are true legends of Irish folk music. Sean & Eamonn were members of The Dubliners for close to 30 years while Patsy joined The Dubs 10 years ago. Meanwhile Gerry was a member of the iconic Four Men & A Dog and has played the banjo with everyone from Sharon Shannon to Shane MacGowan and also tours with guitar legend Joe Bonamassa.
In 2012 the The Dubliners celebrated 50 glorious years in the music business. Highlights of the year were receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards rapidly followed by a sell-out UK concert tour, including a magical night at The Royal Albert Hall in London.
The early highs of 2012 were followed by a devastating blow in April with the sudden tragic death of founding member ‘Banjo’ Barney McKenna. Subsequently, after 48 years of touring, John Sheahan decided to step off the tour bus and it was agreed that The Dubliners, as a touring band, would come to an end. Sean, Patsy, Eamonn and Gerry (who had the daunting task of filling Barney’s very big shoes for the remaining 2012 tour dates) wanted to keep the music alive and The Dublin Legends were born.
The lads are looking forward to entertaining all their old friends & fans in the UK, Scotland & Europe in 2013. The Dublin Legends 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, Finnegan’s Wake, Molly Malone, The Monto, Hand Me Down Me Bible, The Irish Rover, Black Velvet Band & many more.
