For more than four decades, The Irish Rovers have entertained audiences around the world. Now they are playing the Key City Theatre in Cranbrook on September 27.

The Irish Rovers are celebrating 45 years as recording artists. In 2010, they released their latest CD, Gracehill Fair (Rover Records), which, as for most of their albums over the last two decades, was recorded in both Canada and Ireland. The album includes some new original rollicking drinking songs for which the band is best known, as well as a selection of beautiful original ballads. They have also released a new DVD “Home in Ireland”, filmed entirely on-location in their homeland, Ireland.

After more than 37 albums released in North America and many more internationally, the Irish Rovers continue to perform in theatres around the world, with original members George Millar, and Wilcil McDowell. Both John Reynolds and Sean O’Driscoll have been playing with the band for nearly 20 years, and drummer, Fred Graham has been touring with the lads since 2007. Will Millar left the group in 1994, and sadly Jimmy Ferguson passed away in 1997. In 2005 Joe Millar also retired from the band, while his son, Ian Millar took up the family ranks.

The Irish Rovers are still passionate about performing and will continue to tour and entertain their legions of fans. Like the Unicorn, the Rovers are legendary and magical. Don’t miss this opportunity to see them at the Key City Theatre on September 27th at 7:30 p.m.
