I really enjoyed this group - the venue was intimate, so we could really interact with the Dubs. They are really funny guys and love what they do! They have a great time playing and I had a phenomenal time listening and dancing! My friends and I met them afterward and they are extremely nice, fun-loving guys. I went home and got their albums that night! Great show!!!
Quotes & Highlights
The Young Dubliners are excited for the release of Saints and Sinners, their second album on 429 Records—and first batch of original material since 2005’s critically acclaimed Real World. After taking an exciting retro, rootsy labor of love detour to give a shout out to the masters of Irish song past and present on their 2007 429 Records debut With All Due Respect, The Irish Sessions, the Young Dubliners drew inspiration from the trials and tribulations of the past few years on the road where they have encountered their share of, to borrow from an Irish proverb, “poets and patriots, saints and sinners”, for the new album.
Seamlessly blending their rock and Celtic influences into a high energy, anthemic and lyrically poignant mix, the band whose lineup since 2002 includes 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)—jumps energetically from ballad to barn burner, documenting as they go the vibrant yet chaotic world they find themselves in. From edgy political tunes to the travails of life in an internationally touring band, Saints and Sinners chronicles and tackles it all with joy, wit, enthusiasm and a profound belief that things can get better. They’re joined once again by Uillean pipe and pennywhistle master Eric Rigler, famed for his film work on the Titanic and Braveheart soundtracks, who has appeared on the bands last three albums and is a regular touring member.
