The Dubliners were an Irish folk band formed in Dublin in 1962. The original members were Ronnie Drew (vocals, banjo), Ciarán Bourke (vocals, guitar), John Sheahan (fiddle), Barney McKenna (mandolin, tenor banjo), and Liam Weldon (bass). The band’s name was inspired by the James Joyce novel “Dubliners.”
The Dubliners quickly became one of the most popular folk bands in Ireland, and they soon began to tour internationally. They were known for their lively performances and their repertoire of traditional Irish folk songs, as well as their own compositions. The Dubliners released over 40 albums during their career, and they won numerous awards, including two Grammy Awards.
