The Celtic super-band comprised of Irish emigrants, was founded in Canada but first became known on American television in the 60s. As guests on shows like The Tonight Show, The Smothers Brothers Show, Mike Douglas Show, The Virginian, The Dating Game (George Millar actually won the date), they gained experience before hosting their first of three international television series, “The Irish Rovers Show” for the CBC.
Over the next twenty years they became staples of the world music scene with two more international television series, and performing at five World Expos. At that time, fans enjoyed their early hits like Black Velvet Band, The Unicorn, Whisky on a Sunday and Wasn't That A Party. These days they’ve produced more television specials, “The Irish Rovers Home in Ireland” and “The Irish Rovers Christmas”, plus gone viral with Drunken Sailor!
The days of the long tours are finally coming to an end for these Irish lads as they are now completing one last world tour. After that, they will rove again only for special events, festivals and longer stays. International touring will happen only on a very limited scale. At concerts, fans will enjoy a mix of their hits, rollicking Jigs and Reels, plus hilarious stories from their years on the road.
"Throughout the years, these international ambassadors of Irish music have maintained their timeless ability to deliver a rollicking, rousing performance of good cheer - one that will soon have you singing and clapping along. Their songs have become anthems of revelry and joy among generation after generation of fans." - BELFAST TELEGRAPHOpening for the Rovers is We Banjo 3 from Galway, Ireland, performing their blend of traditional Irish , old time, and bluegrass music they call "Celt Grass."
