Clancys, Dubliners are back

    The Bard of Tullaroan: Paddy Fitzpatrick, right with Bobby Clancy of the Clancy Brothers

    SONGS made popular by the Clancy Brothers and the Dubliners in the folk revival of the 1960s will feature in a star-studded concert at The Set, Langton’s on March 23.

    With a cast of 14 superb performers, super singers and top class musicians, what is being termed The Folk Revival will feature the best of local and visiting talent in what promises to be two hours of spectacular entertainment.

    It promises to be a sensational trip down memory lane for those who admired and loved the fantastic Clancy family and their friends in music and song, the Dubliners, Ronnie Drew et al, along with the songs of Dominic Behan, Bob Dylan and Donovan.

    A big attraction too will be a Comhaltas crew from Ballycallan who will entertain with Chieftains numbers and ceili music.

    Other stars will include Jim White, Pat Hogan, Liam Coady, Angela Dunne, Becky Kavanagh Hayde, seanachai Jim Maher, Dan Ryan, Paddy Cleere and Kevin Morrin from Laois.

    The concert is co-ordinated and produced by the Bard of Tullaroan, one Paddy Fitzpatrick, a popular and highly respected singer and guitarist, songwriter who is also known for a dollop of heart-warming comedy.

    Tickets, €10, will be available at the door on the night. Doors open at 7.30pm for an 8pm start.

    There will be a bumper intermission raffle for prizes generously donated by local businesses.

    Top of the pile is a hurley signed by members of the Kilkenny Senior Squad who brought so much success to the black amber as the Cats dominated a challenging All-Ireland scene.

    L’Arche Kilkenny and Buckley Park Maintenance Fund have teamed up for the show as Emfa, Kilkenny City Football Club prepare for a summer of busy activities at their grounds.
