Easter 1916 commemorations
They are playing three nights over the Easter weekend in the CityWest Hotel in Dublin to coincide with the Irish state events taking place around the globe, country, and capital in particular, on the 100th anniversary of the Rising.
On Easter Saturday they are joined by the Celtic Symphony Orchestra for a unique show, followed by a collaboration with special guests on Easter Sunday, where audience members are encouraged to send in their requests in advance.
On Easter Monday the band, who recently celebrated their own 50-year-anniversary, will choose their own set list and promised that the music will go on through the night.
