In 2013, during a speech launching a documentary about his life and work ‘A Portrait Of A Dubliner’ John Sheahan remarked that “after 50 years I have decided it’s time to put a lid on the ‘The Dubliners’, but I think you’ll all agree that with Damien and Declan, the future is in good hands.”
Little did they all know, that just over a year later, the three would be planning to embark on a journey as a group in their own right. They bring together the living pedigree and last surviving original member of Ireland’s greatest folk group, with two of Ireland’s finest contemporary voices and songwriting forces. The repertoire draws on a wealth of new material by all three, along with some of the greatest Irish songs that ironically influenced the two youngest from an early age. The trio recently closed Dublin’s newest and biggest Irish music festival, ‘TradFest’ in January of this year. In the lead up to the event, when asked what the group’s name would be, John Sheahan let it slip that they were affectionately calling themselves ‘The New Triangle’. A new legend is born!
