Hi you there.

In this page we’re going to deal with music related to Ireland.

We have chosen some emblematic bands and singers and they are ordered chronologically.

But first of all, let’s start with a small introduction.

Irish Music is the generic term for music that has been created in various genres on the island of Ireland.

The indigenous music of the island is termed Irish traditional music. It has remained vibrant through the 20th, and into the 21st century, despite globalizing cultural forces. In spite of emigration and a well-developed connection to music influences from Britain and the United States, Irish music has kept many of its traditional aspects and has itself influenced many forms of music, such as country and roots music in the USA, which in turn have had some influence on modern rock music. It has occasionally been fused with rock and roll, punk rock and other genres.

The Dubliners is a band which plays folk and Celtic music. This band was formed in 1962, from then until they have been performing, but with different artists.
Its original members were Ronnie Drew (vocals, guitars), Luke Kelly (vocals, banjo, guitar), Ciaran Bourke (Irish flute, harmonica, guitar, vocals), Barney McKenna (banjo) and John Sheahan (fiddle). The first three artists mentioned are dead today. Current members are Barney McKenna, John Sheahan, Sean Cannon, Eamonn Campbell and Patsy Watchorn.
Originally called "The Ronnie Drew Group" ("The group of Ronnie Drew"), but later the group changed its name to The Dubliners because Kelly was reading James Joyce's novel with the same name.
