The Irish Rovers(Rescheduled)
Friday, March 24, 2023 - 7:30pm
Since the 60's, the Celtic super-group travelled the world as musical ambassadors taking them as far as the Arctic Circle, Japan, and Germany, with regular tours to Australia, New Zealand, and the US. Following an official Mayor's Reception and a sold out gig in the Braid Arts Centre in their hometown of Ballymena, The Irish Rovers were hosted by EPIC Museum Director Mervyn Greene who considers the Irish Rovers as one of Ireland's greatest émigrés. "The Irish Rovers are iconic, world class and with very a long career. That's important to us in Ireland. They've truly taken Ireland with them and shown the world."
Their latest release, "Up Among the Heather - The Scottish Album" pays tribute and reflects the Scottish influence on their Northern Irish roots. The Rovers previous album "The Unicorn, the Continuing Story" gave us the long-awaited sequel to their famed Unicorn song. The last several years have seen the Rovers excite yet another generation by returning to the radio airwaves, expanding their visibility to YouTube and returning to the small screen with three television specials; Home In Ireland, Irish Rovers Christmas, and 50th Anniversary – LIVE on St. Patrick's Day. On this final world tour, the band hopes to sing a proper farewell to all those they have entertained for these many years. After 45 albums released in North America and more internationally, the Irish Rovers continue to receive rave review for their recordings and performances.
