Spirit of The Dubliners lives on at Lincoln

Witness the story of Ireland’s folk legends as the spirit of The Dubliners wafts to Lincoln this May.

Seven Drunken Nights

Direct from the West End, the hit theatre tour Seven Drunken Nights – The Story of the Dubliners will be at The New Theatre Royal on May 21.

In 1967, The Dubliners released a song so controversial - because of its final two verses -it was officially banned on the radio in Ireland.

This infamy catapulted them into global success, and turned the Irish folk band into legends.

Fifty years later, a one-of-a- kind theatre show named after the famous song performed a sell-out tour, bringing to life the incredible story of this phenomenal Irish band.

The show met with critical acclaim, and was performed in London’s West End.

Seven Drunken Nights – The Story of The Dubliners, takes you on a musical journey through the career of Ireland’s favourite sons - Ronnie Drew, Luke Kelly, Barney McKenna, Ciaran Bourke and John Sheahan.

From their roots in O’Donoghue’s Pub in Dublin, Seven Drunken Nights features all the highlights of an amazing 50-year career, and captures the spirit of the Irish folk band that took the world by storm.

For fans of The Dubliners, this truly is a show that cannot be missed.

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 that 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!”

The show features some of Ireland’s most talented musicians, singers and storytellers.
