YOUNG DUBLINERS 2016

The hardest working band in Celtic Rock are back at it! After a winter tour that started in Alaska, cruised to the Bahamas then finished in Dublin, Ireland, the band are ready to get back to working their home from home.

As usual with the summer festival season looming, they find themselves in high demand around the US, playing dates all over the country.

"We are very appreciative of how the bands fans have continued to support the live shows. Makes for a crazy, enjoyable summer despite the hectic travel schedule" says lead singer Keith Roberts.

In recent years they have twice appeared on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, had songs featured in TV shows (Sons Of Anarchy, Human Target) and toured extensively as a headliner and as the opener for such a diverse list of artists as Collective Soul, Jethro Tull, Johnny Lang and many more.

Although the Young Dubliners sound is most commonly called 'Celtic Rock', that label, as labels can often 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. After all, several of the band members have no Irish roots of any kind. "That was always the idea", Keith explains. "The sound was always intended to be a hybrid because we all come from different backgrounds. Even though two of us are from Ireland, a lot of the music we listened to growing up wasn't Irish at all, but when we got here, we got homesick and developed a new appreciation for Irish Music. In truth the Celtic riffs can just as easily come from the American band members. Everyone writes now so you never know what you'll end up with when we write"

"Drawing from all nine albums makes for an interesting set list every night and keeps us on our toes" says Roberts. "Playing new cities and venues each year gives us another type of boost. The US is such a huge market full of little hidden treasures in the form of festivals and clubs, there is never a dull moment".
