Young Dubliners with Craic Haus and The Shillaly Brothers
The Young Dubliners are quite possibly Celtic rock's hardest working band, playing hundreds of shows to thousands of fans across the US and Europe every year.Although the Young Dubliners sound is most commonly called 'Celtic Rock', that label, as labels often can be, is misleading. The Irish influence is there, certainly, but it's not the only influence that rears its head on their albums, or in live shows. The Young Dubliners' live shows speak for themselves; with high energy, excitement, and great music that cannot be missed.
