Luke Kelly Festival to honour Dubliners legend next month

July 18, 2023

A new festival will be held in honour of music legend Luke Kelly in Dublin next month.

In a nod to his inner city roots, the free festival will be held in Smithfield on Sunday, August 13.

Damien Dempsey and former Dubliners member Sean Cannon will perform songs from Luke’s repertoire and old favourites from The Dubliners.

Luke Kelly’s sister, Bessie, said the family are “overwhelmed” and “proud” that the music has lived on and is still celebrated today.
