Celebrate the Memory and Music of an Irish Legend
The memory and music of Irish legend Luke Kelly will be celebrated at Down Arts Centre on Friday, 16 November, with a show featuring Irish singer/songwriter, Chris Kavanagh.
Luke Kelly, who died in January 1984, was widely regarded as one of Ireland’s cultural treasures. His musical legacy left an indelible mark on the folk music scene as an iconic member of the Dubliners and his influence can still be felt today.
Dublin singer/songwriter Chris Kavanagh, who stars in the tribute ‘The Legend of Luke Kelly’, has long had a passion for the music of the Dubliners’ star. Chris’ musical journey began as a child and his love of Luke Kelly’s music led him to learn to play the five-string long neck banjo.
Over the past sixteen years, Chris’ appearance in The Legend of Luke Kelly has thrilled audiences with powerful performance that has gained the approval of both the remaining Dubliners as well as Luke Kelly’s family. In 2011 Chris performed with the Dubliners on their tour in Germany and made a guest appearance on their 50th anniversary concert
The Legend of Luke Kelly show starts at 8pm with doors open from 7pm. Tickets are priced at £16 and £14 for concessions, and can be booked at Down Arts Centre Box Office on 028 4461 0747.
