YOUNG DUBLINERS 

After thirty years as one of the world’s leading Celtic Rock bands, The Young  Dubliners have begun work on their tenth studio album (with longtime producer  Irish-born Tim Boland) while still maintaining their busy tour schedule. They have  returned to the road post-pandemic 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 guitar). With a  batch of incredible new songs and an undeniable energy, the band is excited to bring  their show to 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 Young Dubliners have released nine albums to date. In recent years, the band  has 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 and Chris Issak. 

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,” Roberts said. “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 with.”

“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.”

"(The songs) range from stadium-friendly extravaganzas to more intimate but equally  outspoken pub-sized opuses. Lead singer Keith Roberts' powerhouse vocals front a  maelstrom of fiddle vamps, howling guitars and frenzied drums. But even so, the hint  of rueful melancholy that lies at the heart of traditional Celtic music survives,  transformed yet triumphant.”
