With a reputation for engaging and exciting live shows, Celtic rock ambassadors Young Dubliners have developed one of the most dedicated and loyal fan bases plus became notorious for the whirling "jig pits" which erupt at their concerts. They've twice appeared on Kimmel, had songs featured in TV shows (Sons Of Anarchy, Human Target) and toured extensively as a headliner plus opened for the likes of Collective Soul, Jethro Tull and Johnny Lang. Expect the Dubs to mix free wheeling party rockers with songs of social consciousness.

Bio: The Young Dubliners are excited for the release of Saints and Sinners, their second album on 429 Records--and first batch of original material since 2005's critically acclaimed Real World.

“The Dubs shows I've seen are remarkable for their boundless energy and the often violent jig mosh pits (jig pits?) that swirl and rumble like Midwest funnel clouds before all hell breaks loose and harp-soaked mayhem ensues. Wednesday was a much, much lower-key scene, though not lesser of a show for it. The jig pit that developed Wednesday was packed with toddlers and pre-teens, often careening into each other at full force, splatting to the ground and jumping immediately up to continue jigging. My takeaway was the reach of rock 'n' roll knows no age limit and humans were born to mosh. You really can't ask for a better band and music genre for a free concert in a park. ...artsy enough for the smarty-pants hip crowd, raw enough for the punker crowd, jammy enough for the hippies, cultural enough for the smarty-pants hippies, loud enough for the kiddies and non-threatening enough for the terrified shut-ins who rarely leave their homes for fear of having a good time.”
