About

Seven Drunken Nights – The story of The Dubliners, boasts Irelands finest musicians, telling the story of The Dubliners career spanning over 50 years. The show will take you on a musical journey through time, transporting you back to O’Donoghues pub, TV appearances and famous scenes in their 50 year career, and have you clapping and dancing in the isles.

Creator and co-producer Ged Graham says: “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.”

“There is still a love and respect for the music of The Dubliners. The music may somehow have been diluted over the years but what we wanted to do with the show is bring it back to life and put it in the context of it's time. When The Dubliners name was retired in 2012, it sowed the seed for creating a show that would tell the story of The Dubliners, and keep their music alive.”

“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!” adds Ged.
“The show includes some of Irelands most talented musicians, singers and storytellers who bring you a feel good show that will have you singing along from the opening number right through to the last rousing chorus.”
