The haves and the have-nots come face-to-face in the Broadway hit Good People. Written by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole), this Tony-nominated dramatic comedy finds struggling single mother Margie Walsh laid off from her job at the dollar store and left with the reality that her South Boston neighborhood is providing the same level of opportunity it always has: none. It's the kind of place where, for many people, this month's paycheck covers last month's bills. Facing eviction, Maggie's forced to turn to an old high school flame for help. But he's now a successful physician living in the suburbs ... and Margie is way out of her element. With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakable hope that come with having next to nothing in America. Learn More

This was a fabulous show and exceeded our expectations. Gold Star offered a 0 cost ticket - charging only the $7 service fee on this one. I have become a fan of the Young Dubliners and will follow them and attend other concerts. La Mirada venue was a great venue except the loudspeakers touting upcoming shows during intermission made for a very raucous and annoying intermission when trying to talk to friends. Thank you.

I enjoyed it most when the polite House manager and General manager allowed me to change my seat. Having read other reviews I see I was not the only one with difficulty understanding the lead vocals. La Mirada has an excellent acoustic range but...continued

The Young Dubliners are very energetic and talented. We especially liked the Irish bag pipe and fiddle player. We had excellent seats in the 8th row but it was a bit loud for us and could not always understand the lyrics. For a show like this,...continued
The Young Dubliners consider themselves to be ambassadors of Celtic and American rock. The band members’ dual Irish and American heritage has always resulted in a distinctive and richly varied musical palette. Ignoring labels has carved a niche for the Young Dubliners as a fusion band— not rock, not punk, not Celtic, but all of those sounds, punctuated with penny whistles, mandolins, and other classically Irish instruments. That sound keeps them producing exciting new music that has continually won critical acclaim. With All Due Respect — The Irish Sessions, paid tribute to classic Irish performers and won fans throughout the world as well as the No. 14 slot on the Billboard charts. Building a fervent fan base comparable to that of jam band rockers like Phish and Dave Matthews Band, the Young Dubliners have become notorious for the whirling jig pits that erupt at their live shows.
Irish-American rockers the Young Dubliners are psyched about last year’s release of Saints and SInners, a collection of lively recordings inspired by their tireless love of the road and the trials and tribulations that the group has encountered over the years. Playing an average of 180-250 shows internationally a year, the band members have seen their share of joy and pain and they share both their personal experiences and external observations on the new recording. Borrowing from an Irish proverb, the band’s journeys have been filled with “poets and patriots, saints and sinners.” Filled with free-wheeling party anthems to politically charged songs to poignant, harmony-laden jams, Saints and Sinners finds the Dubliners seamlessly blending their trademark rock and Celtic influences and offering up a vibrant collection of songs bursting with wit and wisdom. Produced by Ken Sluiter and Tim Boland, Saints and Sinners features co-founder Keith Roberts (vocals, guitar),fellow Dubliner Brendan Holmes (bass, vocals), American-born members Bob Boulding (guitar, vocals), Chas Waltz (violin, keyboards, harp, mandolin, vocals) and Dave Ingraham (drums, percussion). Uillean pipe and pennywhistler master Eric Rigler makes a special appearance as does Blues rock great Kenny Wayne Shepard who lends his talents to the explosive instrumental “Saoirse”.
The instrumental “Saiorse” featuring Kenny Wayne Shepard is a prime example of how the Dubs maintain a dual identity as both Irish and American songwriters. Says Roberts, “The title means ‘freedom’ in Gaelic and to us that means we have the liberty to take this style of music and push and pull it in every direction. The vibe of the song goes from Irish to rock back to Irish with Kenny’s wild blues on top of it. We’ve always defied pigeonholing because our sound is the grooving result of Irish and American guys coming together and drawing from a little bit of everything.”
The Young Dubliners are playing with special guest Eric Rigler, the most recorded piper in the world. Eric Rigler is the piper and whistle player on the soundtracks for Braveheart, Titanic, Million Dollar Baby and many many more.
