The Dublin Legends – Live in Concert

The Dublin Legends (formerly world-famous Irish folk band, The Dubliners) take to The Albany stage as part of their nationwide Seven Drunken Nights tour in 2022 – their first appearance in Coventry for several decades.

With over 50 years of performing experience between them with The Dubliners, Sean Cannon, Paul Watchorn, Gerry O’Connor & Shay Kavanagh are The Dublin Legends. Sean Cannon had been the lead singer with The Dubliners for over 30 years (taking over from the late Luke Kelly).

The band were created following the sudden death of The Dubliners founding member Barney McKenna when it was agreed that The Dubliners would come to an end as a touring band – and The Dublin Legends were born.

The Dublin Legends have continued the iconic musical legacy, travelling nationally and internationally to play concerts to a whole new generation of Irish music fans and their traditional Irish music followers the world over.

Their rousing folk songs and ballads are world-renowned – Fields of AthenryDirty Old TownThe Wild RoverThe Rare Auld TimesMolly MaloneThe Irish RoverBlack Velvet BandSeven Drunken Nights, and many more… and promises an extraordinary show full of toe-tapping, foot-stomping music, humour and craic!

This show was due to be staged in May 2020 at The Albany Theatre but was delayed due to the pandemic. The original date was on course to sell-out so Coventry`s large Irish community are advised to get their tickets quickly for this rousing night of emerald isle classics.
