Dubliners - Traditional
Irish Songs, Ballads, and Pub Fun
Dubliners are one of the best known bands in the Celtic music world. They got
together in 1962 and were soon recording album after album together. Their first
hit single "Seven Drunken Nights" launched them into international popularity
and frequent touring. A stint with The Pogues brought them a new audience and
more top hits.
what seems most interesting to me is that The Dubliners are THE band one should
know about when talking about pub songs. Whenever you go to any store and look
for a compilation of traditional Irish songs or pub songs, you will find The Dubliners.
They seem to have or be on more compilation albums than any other Celtic band
The definitive Dubliners collection with nearly sixty
songs on two full-length CDs drawing from the first four albums they recorded
with EMI from 1966-1969. The songs are everything you would expect from a great
pub set: funny, lewd, boisterous and fiery fun. This is a great collection of
Irish drinking songs !
