WIN tickets to see Seven Drunken Nights at The Playhouse in Weston-super-Mare
PUBLISHED: 12:00 26 April 2018
A celebration of one of Ireland’s most popular bands will be staged in Weston-super-Mare next week.
Seven Drunken Nights, the story of The Dubliners, will be at The Playhouse in High Street at 7.30pm on May 4.
The band secured global success after releasing a song so controversial in 1967 it was banned from being played on radio in their home country.
Five decades on a critically-acclaimed show will bring their history to life, from their roots at O’Donoghue’s pub in Dublin to worldwide fame.
Creator and co-producer Ged Graham said: “Both myself and fellow cast member Billy Barton were born and raised in The Liberties in Dublin and grew up listening to The Dubliners.
“I don’t think 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 epitomise the image of an Irish ballad group.
“Seven Drunken Nights is very much an audience participation show.
“People can expect to hear all of the classic songs of The Dubliners and to feel the energy of the lads at the peak of their performing careers.
“It will be a guaranteed great night of music, song and craic.”
Tickets, priced £23, are available online or by calling 01934 645544.
