Young Dubs to play The Crown Uptown Theater in Wichita, KS and then Scotfest in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.

Thanks to all who came out to see us last week. There were some truly brilliant nights from Brooklyn, NY all the way to Milford, PA. One major highlight was playing at Daryl’s House and streaming the concert live. We shall return sooner then later.

This Thursday (Sept 13) we play in Wichita, KS at the Crown Uptown theater. We have only played in Wichita once before and that was with Jethro Tull many years ago. For Thursdays show we have enlisted the help of the Corry Academy of Irish Dance who will perform during two of our instrumentals. Not to be missed! Show starts at 7.30pm sharp.


On Friday , Saturday and Sunday we will make our first appearance at SCOTFEST in Broken Arrow, OK, This looks like it will be packed full of bands ranging from Scottish to Irish and beyond. Many of our long time friends will be performing all weekend. We play at various times so make sure you check out the set times HERE to see when and where.

Keith and Ian from the Elders

Had to share a few pics from Kansas City Irish Fest. We joined We Banjo 3 and the Elders onstage for their closing sets. It was a blast.
Here’s Keith and Ian from the Elders doing the Fishermens Blues on Friday night.

Keith with We Banjo 3

Onstage with We Banjo 3 on Saturday night. It was great to finally meet these guys. Well worth checking out.

A special show in Santa Monica.

We have added a few new shows for the year including a very special event for November. Many of you know this band started in Santa Monica, CA. It has been a very long time since we played in that town but when an old friend contacted us about playing his new venue we decided it was time. Harvelles has been in Santa Monica since 1931 but was never on our radar until now. One of our fellow musician pals has purchased the place and asked if we would help him celebrate.

The show will be on Sat Nov 10th. There are only 150 tickets so grab yours now and lets relive the early days of The Young Dubliners in Santa Monica. For one night only. CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS


The Ireland Trip March 2020. Only a few spots left!

We have just finalized the details for the Ireland trip where we will bring 120 fans on the holiday of a lifetime. The truth is we did not plan to do another one until the huge success of our March 2018 tour. It sold out so quickly and we received so many requests to do one more that we decided it was the only thing to do. So we are announcing our 10 day Ireland extravaganza to include Belfast, Galway, Dublin and TWO nights at a castle in Donegal (plus many other stops along the way). This itinerary has been hand picked based on past experience and will be loads of fun from the first to the last day. Contact Hammond Tours to book your spot.

See you soon,

Keith, Chas, Bren, Dave and Justin,
