The Legend of Luke Kelly
Wexford Town, Co. Wexford
12 November 2022
On January 30th 1984 it is said that the whole of Ireland grieved the early death of Dubliner Luke Kelly. He left an indelible mark as being the greatest folk artist of the 20th Century, and is regarded as one of Ireland's cultural treasures.

The Legend of Luke Kelly is an authentic show celebrating the life and songs of Ireland’s most iconic and greatest folk singer. Created and performed by the renowned Chris Kavanagh the show is not a tribute but a journey through Luke’s music that has received rave reviews in Ireland and abroad.

An overwhelming endorsement of authenticity are the huge amount of followers and regular sell-out performances in Ireland’s most prestigious venues such as Vicar Street and Cork Opera House.

In 2011 Chris was asked by John Sheahan to perform with The Dubliners on their German tour and Luke’s family are still in regular attendance at his concerts.
