Sean Cannon, Patsy Watchorn, Eamonn Campbell & Gerry O'Connor are all true legends of Irish Folk music. Sean & Eamonn were members of The Dubliners for close to 30 years while Patsy joined "The Dubs" 10 years ago. Meanwhile Gerry was a member of the iconic Four Men & A Dog and has played with everyone from Sharon Shannon to Shane MacGowan and also tours with guitar legend Joe Bonamassa.
In 2012 the Legendary Irish Folk group The Dubliners celebrated 50 glorious years in the music business by receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, followed by a magical concert at The Royal Albert Hall in London — a night to remember.
Sadly, however, they subsequently suffered a body blow with the sudden tragic death of founding member "Banjo" Barney McKenna. It was agreed that The Dubliners, as a touring band, would come to an end. The Dublin Legends were born.
The Dublin Legends — Eamonn Campbell, Sean Cannon, Patsy Watchorn and "new kid on the block" Gerry O'Connor continue the legacy started by the Dubliners back in 1962. As Barney himself said "It's Too Late To Stop Now".
From the get go The Dublin Legends played to enthusiastic crowds and the general reaction was: "They're better than ever!". The Dublin Legends continue the magic; their energy and stamina knows no bounds and will put many a teenage band to shame.
Their concerts in September 2013 were recorded for a very happy and captive audience at the Metropol in Vienna. The atmosphere was electric and the craic was ninety. "The lads" perform rousing jigs and reels, melancholic ballads and the classic songs that are known the world over like 'Whiskey in The Jar', 'Dirty Old Town', and 'Molly Malone'.
