The Rapparees present Fairytale of The Pogues

A Christmas Tribute

Belfast's busiest folk band, The Rapparees, have been fanatical followers of The Pogues throughout their musical lives; and when the chance to pay homage to their heroes came up, they jumped at it. 3 years and 6 sold-out shows later, their Christmas Pogues tribute concerts have now become an annual tradition.

On Thursday 21 December The Rapparees will bring the show to The Academy, Dublin for the first time. The usual 5-piece line up will be expanded to 12 musicians including piano, brass, bass and percussion to help re-create the magic of such hits as Fiesta, Streams of Whiskey, Sally McLennane, If I Should Fall From Grace With God and many more. Not forgetting a certain festive classic for the weekend before Christmas!

Tickets on sale this Friday, 29 September at 09:00.
