Performed by Chris Kavanagh
And so the Legend lives on!
On 30th January 1984 it is said that the Whole of Dublin grieved the early death of Luke Kelly.He has left an indelible mark as being the greatest folk artist of the 20th Century.
In October 2001 ‘A Tribute to Luke Kelly’ was launched in Dublin’s Hotpress HQ before an audience which included Luke’s siblings and relations. As a result of the show’s sucess, MCD booked the band for a three month residency at the Olympia theatre which led to a memorable appearance on RTE’s Open House.
Over the past seven years they have amazed audiences following powerful sell-out performances in prominent Irish venues with the regular attendance of the Kelly family. Popularity has seen the band touring abroad even as far away as Astralia.
Lead singer, Chris Kavanagh bears a remarkable resemblance to Luke while his singing talents capture the depth and passion of the great man. He is joined on stage by accomplished musicians who all consider it an honour to bring Luke’s memory to the stage in the ultimate tribute to the King of balladeers.
