Seven Drunken Nights comes to the Opera House
Seven Drunken Nights comes to Manchester during the 2018 Manchester Irish Festival as part of a massive European tour. It is being staged on Sunday 18 March at 7.30pm at the Opera House Theatre in the city centre.
The Irish Show is the Story of The Dubliners, it takes you on a musical journey through the career of Ireland’s
favourite sons, Ronnie Drew, Luke Kelly, Barney McKenna, Ciaran Bourke and John Sheahan as they rose to fame as Ireland’s legendary folk band.
From their roots in O’Donoghue’s Pub in Dublin, Seven Drunken Nights features all the highlights of an amazing fifty-year career, and captures the spirit of the Irish folk band that took the world by storm. For fans of The Dubliners, this truly is a show that cannot be missed.
Creator and co-producer Manchester's very own Ged Graham says:Both myself and fellow cast member Billy Barton were born and raised in The Liberties in Dublin and grew up listening to The Dubliners. "I don't think that there is any musician in Ireland who hasn't been influenced by their music. The Dubliners hold a unique place in the heartsof not only Irish people but people who love folk music generally and epitomise the image of an Irish Ballad Group.
͟There is still a love and respect for the music. When The Dubliners name was retired in 2012, it sowed the seed for creating a show that would tell the story of The Dubliners, and keep their music alive."
Tony Hennigan from the Manchester Irish Festival added "Its great to see Ged stage such a great show during the Festival, I'm sure it will be well supported by his friends here in Manchester."
Seven Drunken Nights is very much an audience participation show. People can expect to hear all of the classic songs of The Dubliners and to feel the energy of the lads at the peak of their performing careers. It will be a guaranteed great night of music, song and craic!
͟With Irish craic, music and humour throughout, Seven Drunken Nights matches the energy seen only by The Dubliners at the height of their career. Featuring some of Ireland’s most talented musicians, singers and storytellers, you will be singing, clapping and dancing in the aisles from opening number, right through to the last rousing chorus.
