Fri 29 Mar, 8pm

The Rapparees bring their energetic tribute to The Pogues to Cork in 2024.

Book

Belfast’s busiest folk band, the Rapparees, have been fanatical followers of the Pogues throughout their musical lives; and in 2014 when they were asked to pay homage to their heroes , they jumped at it.

Ten years on and over 30 sold-out shows later, their Pogues tribute concerts have now become an annual tradition in Belfast ,Dublin and the UK with them having just completed a sold out 12 date tour in December 2023 .

Since the recent sad passing of the one and only Shane McGowan the band have received many requests to take the show to other audiences and will play 4 dates in Ireland this Easter, following this up with an expanded Irish and UK Christmas Tour in November and December 2024 .

The Rapparees have been making waves in folk music circles for over 15 years. Renowned for their unique and distinctive sound and their trademark ‘rough & ready’ style of playing, reminiscent of that of Shane McGowan and The Popes. They forged a deep understanding and Grá for the music of Shane and The Popes having toured with them earlier in their musical careers.

They reproduce the magic of such hits as Fiesta, A Rainy Night in Soho, Dirty Old Town  ,A Pair of Brown Eyes ,Streams of Whiskey, Sally McLennane, If I Should Fall From Grace With God and many more , not forgetting a certain festive classic.
