All For Me Grog – The Songs and Stories of The Dubliners – 23rd February 2018
February 23 @ 8:00 pm€20
All For Me Grog, is the show that brings you the songs and story of Irelands most internationally famous folk band of all time-THE DUBLINERS.
Presented by The Liberties, who, in replicating the original Dubliners lineup of Ronnie Drew, Luke Kelly, Barney McKenna, Ciaron Burke and John Sheehan, with the exact same instrumentation and sound,bring to the stage a show of uncanny similarity to the most fondly remembered and successful Dubliners lineup.
The unique and wonderful voice of Ronnie Drew, is brought to life by Wayne Wilder, who is probably the most authentic Ronnie sound alike in the entire world.
With his red hair and powerful melodic voice, banjo maestro James Gallagher, not only looks like Luke Kelly, but sounds so close to the man, that it has to be a fluke of nature. Bardo, is a man who can produce sweet backing and the jigs and reels on the fiddle,in the style of John Sheahan with aplomb and finesse. While Jeremy Jenkinson plays the whistle with the sweet tone and quirky twirls of Ciaron Burke. The man sitting down, his nimble fingers dancing along his banjos fretboard, is John Hill, in the guise of Barney McKenny.
Seven Drunken Nights, The Irish Rover, Scorn Not His Simplicity, Follow Me Up To Carlow, The Wild Rover, McAlpines Fusileers etc. will have you clapping your hands, stomping your feet and singing along to this uplifting two hour show. All For Me Grog-the Songs and Story of the Dubliners, a show to delight all lovers of rousing song, music and craic.
