The Dublin Legends played at Eastleigh’s Concorde Club on Friday night as the guys rolled back the years with timeless Irish classics. Former The Dubliners members Sean Cannon, Eamonn Campbell, Gerry O’Connor and Paul Watchorn all entertained a packed out Concorde Club in Eastleigh. The legends played the likes of Whiskey In The Jar which went down really well with everyone in the venue as suddenly everyone’s Irish roots started to come alive again. Having played at this venue before you could tell that the band was well received with everyone as they played an old time classic Dirty Old Town with all the crowd at The Concorde Club getting in to the spirit of things. It was fantastic to see years of musical experience all under one roof and they sure knew how to get a crowd going after all these years. When founding member Barney McKenna died it was feared that it would be end of the road for The Dubliners.  Campbell joined The Dubliners in 1987 and from that time produced all the band’s albums. With the band touring all over Europe last year, one gentleman flew all the away from Holland for his 75th birthday, something that must of been a special moment for the man. In total there was two sets on the night that also included The Wild River and The Spanish Lady among many more. One song that was a highlight was Molly Malone as the set came to a close on a really pleasant evening.
