8th May 9:00 pm
The Young Dubliners

The Young Dubliners have built a fervent fan base comparable to that of jam band rockers like Phish and Dave Matthews Band. From their humble beginnings at the Irish Rover, the band evolved through various personnel changes into a pugnacious, crazy but coolly irresistible force of nature. “Even with all the touring we do, the thing that keeps us going is the one thing that never gets old,” says guitarist/vocalist Keith Roberts. “And that’s playing those older songs people love and then mixing in a new song and hearing an excited reaction from the crowd for the first time. We’ve had our share of tough gigs too, but all it takes is that one great show, those perfect moments of the band and audience communication. It’s all about the joy of performing, watching the people dance, and hearing them sing along.”
If you purchase a ticket at a table, you are required to purchase dinner. You must arrive by 7 pm.
