There are some singers and groups that transcend their origins to become successful and respected in mainstream music simply because they are genuinely good - brilliant, in fact. The Dubliners, an Irish folk group founded in the early sixties, is one such act. Besides the group itself, the lead singers Luke Kelly and Ronnie Drew created their own mythology.
The 30th of January saw the 35th anniversary of Luke's death - only 43 when he died. He was one in a million and influenced so many Irish entertainers. Even the members of the Larry Mullen Jr Band looked up to him.
I don't really have to say much more about him, other than suggest that you watch these...

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
