The Dubliners Biography - Breaking Out of Ireland
The Ronnie Drew Folk Group was founded in Dublin in 1962 after a band were thrown together for a fundraising concert. After a name change and gigs at local venues the Irishmen found themselves with a spot at Edinburgh Festival and on popular TV show Hootenanny. The exposure generated from these appearances caught the eye of Transatlantic Records. with whom they released their self-titled debut album. Their first single, Seven Drunken Nights', managed to debut at Number 5 and became notorious for its risqué subject matter, leading it to be unofficially banned from Radio Telefis Eireann but subsequently picked up by the BBC.
Their renditions of songs such as Finnegan's Wake' by the now deceased Luke Kelly and Ronnie Drew are for the most part considered the definitive versions of these hilarious Irish street ballads, finding fans in the form of Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and Roy Orbison. Regardless of numerous line up changes the band have managed to come out on top and were awarded with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2012 for their contributions to the Irish folk scene.
