Luke Kelly Tribute
LUKE KELLY TRIBUTE – APRIL 2008
On 30th January 1984, it is said that the whole of Dublin grieved the early death of Luke Kelly... He has left an indelible mark as being one of the greatest folk Artist of the 20th century. In October 2001, A TRIBUTE TO LUKE KELLY was launched in Dublin's Hotpress HQ before an audience which included Luke's siblings and relations. As a result of the show's success the band was booked for a three month residency at the Olympia Theatre which then led to a memorable appearance on RTE's Open House. They also received an invitation to perform on Eamon Dunphy's radio show 'The Last Word' and are the only band to have done so. Over the past few years they have amazed audiences following powerful performances in prominent Irish venues. Lead singer, Chris Kavanagh, bears a remarkable resemblance to Luke while his singing talent captures the depth and passion of the great man. He is joined by accomplished musicians who all consider it an honour to bring Luke's memory to the stage in the ultimate tribute to the King of Balladeers.
