Quotes & Highlights
Hear the Irish Rover’s immortal classic, “The Unicorn” here.
For nearly fifty years, The Irish Rovers stand as one of the original and leading international ambassadors of Irish music by charming audiences with exciting stage shows and masterful story-telling. As one recent newspaper stated, “The band has sold millions of albums, but to really experience them, you need to see them live, because as well as being able to deliver a heart-warming ballad or moving instrumental, these Rovers can rock.” Their anthems of good cheer and revelry connect with generations of fans worldwide.
The Rovers will also present newer favorites, like “Drunken Sailor,” “Dear Little Shamrock Shore,” “Gracehill Fair,” “The Dublin Pub Crawl” and many more. On their last sold out concert tour, The Irish Rovers garnered rave reviews for their new Drunken Sailor_, Home In Ireland_ and Merry Merry Time of Year albums. Due to YouTube, their “Drunken Sailor” song has reached a new young audience, with almost nine million hits. The Rovers responded to this action on YouTube by heading back to the studio and recording a new CD of rousing, energetic sea songs, including a tribute to The Titanic for its 100th anniversary.
