On January 30th 1984 it is said that the whole of Ireland grieved the early death of Dubliner Luke Kelly.
He has left an indelible mark as being the greatest folk artist of the 20th Century and his music is widely regarded as one of Ireland’s cultural treasures.
Renowned singer and multi–instrumentalist Chris Kavanagh brings his show “The Legend of Luke Kelly” to the Liberty Hall Theatre for the very first time.
This special concert will celebrate what would have been Luke’s 83rd Birthday this coming November 17th.
Chris had the honour of standing in with The Dubliners on their tour of Germany in 2011, and has had John Sheahan, Luke’s family and even President Michael D Higgins attend his shows.
An overwhelming endorsement of authenticity are the huge amount of followers and regular sell-out performances in Ireland’s most prestigious venues such as Vicar Street, Cork Opera House and Belfast’s Grand Opera House to name but a few.
For anyone who loves Luke Kelly’s music, this is a night not to be missed.
