The Young Dubliners are about to begin their 2018 US summer tour. It will include many festivals and club dates throughout the country. Having just returned from a month long winter tour of Ireland and Denmark with their new guitarist (Justin Pecot) they are now putting the final touch on a set to delight summer audiences.
The band has released eight albums of original material and one Irish song cover album. This meant that there was a lot of material for Justin to learn. He has managed to not only learn the material but also to make it his own. The live show is now as exciting for the band as it is for the audience with a growing chemistry between the band members that seems to reach new heights at every show.
Writing has also begun for a new album, which the band hopes to start recording at the end of this year.
In recent years the Young Dubs have appeared 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, as labels can often be, is misleading. The Irish influence is there, certainly, but it’s not the only influence that rears its head on their albums, or in live shows. After all, several of the band members have no Irish roots of any kind. “That was always the idea”, explains Keith Roberts (Lead singer and acoustic guitarist). “The sound was always intended to be a hybrid because we all come from different backgrounds. Even though two of us are from Ireland, a lot of the music we listened to growing up wasn’t Irish at all, but when we got here, we 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”
The band will be drawing from all nine albums for these upcoming shows with a few performances of the entire “With All Due respect, The Irish Sessions” album at various Irish summer festivals.
