Irish folk legend comes to Coventry

The front man of one of the most popular Irish Folk Bands in the world is heading to Coventry this Easter.
Sean Cannon, frontman with the Dublin Legends – previously the iconic Dubliners – will be joined by his sons James and Robert for an evening of Irish songs, jigs, soft ballads and fine Celtic music all played with Irish charm and passion with a bit of blarney thrown in for good measure.
For four decades Cannon has been a firm favourite on the live music circuit and has built up a huge reputation as a musician and performer.
Having become known as a renowned solo artist on the folk scene, Cannon joined The Dubliners in 1982 after appearing with the group as a guest artist.
The Dubliners were founded in 1962. The group's line up has seen many changes during its five decades of success and the group's mix of lively Irish folk songs and street ballads secured them international success.
Cannon's previously frequent appearances at almost every British folk club and festival have become rarer as he stepped up his commitment to the Dublin Legends.
But the renowned musician will be taking time away from his busy touring schedule around Europe to perform at Christ the King Club, Coundon at 8pm on Easter Sunday, April 5th, where the Irish gem will be joined on stage by his equally talented sons.
People are being invited to enjoy the craic and sing along with the family trio to songs including Whiskey in the Jar, Black Velvet Band, Irish Rover, Molly Malone and more.
Tickets for the gig are £5 available from behind the bar at Christ the King Club.
