Win tickets to see legends of Irish music at The Playhouse
PUBLISHED: 09:00 01 April 2018
Stars of Irish folk music will take to a Weston-super-Mare stage next month and are set to perform some of the greatest songs from the emerald isle.
Formerly known as The Dubliners, The Dublin Legends will perform at The Playhouse, in High Street, on April 19 at 7.30pm – and the Mercury has two pairs of tickets to give away.
The Dubliners spent 50 years touring the globe since forming in 1962, becoming one of the most successful and influential Irish bands of all time – with more than 30 studio albums to their name.
They received a lifetime achievement prize at BBC Radio Two’s Folk Awards in 2012, recognised for decades of service which grew the popularity of Irish music across the globe.
The band was renamed after the death of founding member Barney McKenna and retirement of John Sheahan. They began touring under a new moniker but still showcasing their music from their decades-old back catalogue.
The three piece – made up of Sean Cannon, Paul Watchorn and Gerry O’Connor – will play fan-favourite songs like Whiskey In The Jar, Seven Drunken Nights, The Rare Auld Times and Molly Malone.
Tickets, priced £22, are available from 01934 645544 or online at www.theplayhouse.co.uk
