In association with legendary Irish pub O’Donoghue’s, the place where it all started for The Dubliners back in 1962, Seven Drunken Nights tells the story of a career spanning 50 years and invokes the spirit of Ronnie Drew, Luke Kelly, Barney McKenna, John Sheahan, Ciaran Bourke and Jim McCann.
This hugely talented cast of musicians and singers bring the music of this iconic group back to life and will have you singing and dancing in the aisles. It is without doubt the ultimate feel good Irish show
In 1967, The Dubliners released a song so controversial that it was
officially banned on the radio in Ireland. This infamy catapulted them into global success, and turned the Irish folk band into legends. From their roots in O’Donoghue’s Pub in Dublin, Seven Drunken Nights. The Story of the Dubliners features all the highlights of an amazing fifty year career. Featuring some of Ireland’s most talented musicians, singers and storytellers the show will be playing more than 125 prestigious venues.
“I don’t think that there is any musician in Ireland who hasn’t been influenced by their music. The Dubliners hold a unique place in the hearts of not only Irish people but people who love folk music generally and they epitomise the image of an Irish Ballad Group.” “There is still love and respect for the music. When ‘The Dubliners’ name was retired in 2012, it sowed the seed for creating a show that would tell the story of The Dubliners, and keep their music alive.” With Irish craic, music and humour throughout, Seven Drunken Nights immerses its audiences in the atmosphere of Ireland, giving people the chance to celebrate, through authentic music and creative theatre, part of Ireland’s rich cultural history.
Seven Drunken Nights is brought to you by Starshine Promotions in association with Prestige Productions and marketed by Chameleon Music Marketing.
