Dublin 4 / Press

“For those whose idea of Irish music begins with "Danny Boy" and ends "When Irish Eyes are Smiling," St. Patrick's day offers a perfect excuse to seek out its other, traditional form: the rollicking tunes more authentic than green beer and as rich as a pint of Guinness. Such songs as "The Wild Rover" and "Whiskey in the Jar" are staples for Dublin 4. They perform traditional songs on traditional instruments-whistle, banjo, guitar, mandolin and bodhran. But they're performers, not professors, so their playing is mainly aimed at getting the audience dancing, singing and having a good time. They chose their name not just because they're a quartet: Dublin 4 is also a ZIP code in that city. Lambe said "The joke behind it is,that is where all the upper-class people live," He said when Irish people hear them sing, they note their accents and say" Your not from Dublin 4."”

“Last year four Irish born multitalented musicians formed an Irish musical group and aptly christened themselves the Dublin 4. They had a clear vision of what kind of music they would play and how they would go about their craft. Dublin 4 have already made guite a reputation for themselves throughout the Los Angeles area, playing at local pubs, fundraisers and The Irish Fair. Their rapid rise to popularity is well deserved. Their music is strictly traditional in style and it always resounds with their love for the music and songs they perform.”
