Dubliners take a breather ahead of next tour dates

The Dubliners are taking a short breather before setting off on the next leg of their British tour.

The legendary Irish group have already played Glasgow, Aberdeen and Perth on the Scottish leg of the tour. They resume in Scotland at Coatbridge on 8th March before setting off for England, starting at Newcastle City Hall on 10th March.

Early reviews are very encouraging. Fans coming out of the Perth concert described the show as “an unforgettable evening with all of the Dubliners’ best works, not forgetting the past masters whose music and words will live on”.

Another reviewer said: “These Irishmen are a great group of entertainers and musicians.”

I suppose after all these years that’s the kind of reaction we’ve come to expect because the Dubliners are one band that never disappoint.

I’m looking forward to catching them in Nottingham on the 15th.
