The hardest working band in Celtic Rock is about to start another hard touring year. After a packed 2016 that started in Alaska, cruised to the Bahamas, returned to Dublin, Ireland then toured all summer long in the US the band are ready to do it all again in 2017. Once more the year will start in Alaska and cover the entire US. March is the usual multi State mayhem as they celebrate the St Paddy's day madness that happily unites the whole country in a mutual desire to go nuts.

«We are very appreciative of how the bands fans have continued to support the live shows. Makes for a crazy but enjoyable year despite the hectic travel schedule» says lead singer Keith Roberts.

In recent years they have twice 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 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», Keith explains. «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 when we write»

«Drawing from all nine albums makes for an interesting set list every night and keeps us on our toes» says Roberts. «Playing new cities and venues each year gives us another type of boost. The US is such a huge market full of little hidden treasures in the form of festivals and clubs, there is never a dull moment».
