A Celtic Christmas with the Young Dubliners

SUPPORT

Easily the hardest working band in Celtic Rock, the Young Dubliners have toured from Alaska to the Bahamas with stints back in their hometown of Dublin, Ireland. In recent years they have twice appeared 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 and many more. Lead singer, Keith Roberts, explains that although the Young Dubliners sound is most commonly called ‘Celtic Rock’, that label, as labels can often be, is misleading. The Irish influence is there, certainly, but it’s not the only influence that rears its head on their albums, or in live shows. After all, several of the band members have no Irish roots of any kind. “The sound was always intended to be a hybrid because we all come from different backgrounds,” Keith states. Even though two of us are from Ireland, a lot of the music we listened to growing up wasn’t Irish at all, but when we got here, we got homesick and developed a new appreciation for Irish Music. “Drawing from all nine albums makes for an interesting set list every night.
