After thirty years as one of the world’s leading Celtic Rock bands, The Young
Dubliners have begun work on their tenth studio album while still
maintaining their busy tour schedule.
Having survived the crushing impact of the lockdown on their industry they
have returned stronger than ever and determined to bring their fusion of
Celtic and rock music to as many people as they can.
The band is Keith Roberts (vocals / guitar), Chas Waltz (Violin, keys, vocals),
Justin Pecot (guitar, vocals), Dave Ingraham (drums) and Ethan Jones (bass
With a solid line up, a new batch of songs and the help of their new agency,
Skyline, The YD are excited to bring live music back into festivals, theaters and
clubs around the world.
“We want to be the band who reminds the world how important a good gig can
be to our sanity after what we’ve all been through” says Roberts.
For only the second time the band is looking to its fans to finance the album
instead of a traditional record company. “The business has changed so much
over our lifetime that it no longer makes sense for us to take money from a
label and then owe it all back” adds Roberts. “Making all our supporters co
producers is a far more rewarding way to make a record and allows us to
maintain control all the way”.  The band have teamed up with long time
producer, Irish born Tim Boland, and will begin recording in the coming
The Young Dubliners have released nine albums to date. The set on the
upcoming dates will draw from all their albums and include unreleased new
In recent years the Young Dubs have appeared twice on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel
Live, had songs featured in TV shows (Sons Of Anarchy, Human Target) and
toured extensively as a headliner and as the opener for such a diverse list of
artists as Collective Soul, Jethro Tull, Johnny Lang, Los Lobos, Chris Isaak and
many more.
Although the Young Dubliners sound is most commonly called ‘Celtic Rock’,
that label can often be misleading. The Irish influence is certainly there, but
it’s not the only influence that bursts through on their albums or live shows.
After all, several of the band members have no Irish roots of any kind. “That
was always the idea”, explains Roberts “The sound was intended to be a
hybrid because we all come from different backgrounds. Even though I am
from Ireland, a lot of the music I listened to growing up wasn’t Irish at all, but
when I got here, I got homesick and developed a new appreciation for
Irish Music. In truth the Celtic riffs can just as easily come from the American
band members. Everyone writes now so you never know what you’ll end up
“Their sound defies categorization. The Young Dubliners can be seen as
Ireland's answer to Los Lobos, with a similar combination of traditional folk
music, raucous electric rock, and forward-thinking experimentation.”



Barnaby and the Butcher are a 4-piece from Tucson, Arizona; playing music from the broadly defined genres of Roots Rock and Southwest Americana. Their original compositions and cover choices run the gamut of classic country, dark country, blues, and rock; all of which they perform with a distinctly unique style that evokes deep nostalgia while managing to feel entirely new. These musicians have played internationally for decades, but this is the project that finally allows them to play and create together
