Celebrating the memory and music of a true Irish musical legend.

On 30th January 1984 it is said that the whole of Ireland grieved the early death of Dubliner legend Luke Kelly.

He has left an indelible mark as being the greatest folk artist of the
20th Century and his music is widely regarded as one of Ireland’s cultural treasures.

Dublin singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Chris Kavanagh was born
and raised on Irish music and has been singing Irish folk songs
since he was three years old. He learned to play the piano by ear when he was five and
his love and passion for Luke Kelly’s music led him to learn to play the 5 string long neck banjo in 2001.
Chris bears a remarkable resemblance to Luke, while his singing talents capture the depth and passion of the great man.
Over the past twelve years he has amazed audiences following powerful sell-out performances in prominent.
