CHATHAM DAILY NEWS: Irish Rovers tickets still available
Posted on April 26th, 2016 at 7:00 pm
There are still some seats remaining for legendary Celtic folk band the Irish Rovers, who are coming to the St. Clair College Capitol Theatre Friday, Nov. 6.
The group is celebrating its 50-year anniversary with a tour, as well as a triple CD set. Audiences across Ontario will be the first to see the new children's album, 'Songs for the Wee Folk,' available at concerts.
In 2011, the Irish Rovers were in town to play a fundraiser for Chatham Outreach for Hunger and the Chatham-Kent branch of the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The show was filmed for a DVD/television special called, "An Irish Rovers Christmas.''
The band was created when George Millar and Jimmy Ferguson, both from Northern Ireland, met at an Irish function in Toronto.
They eventually hosted their own television series and became Canadian citizens upon the insistence of then-prime minister Pierre Trudeau.
The group has also been featured on The Tonight Show and The Smothers Brothers Show.
Fans at the Chatham performance will be treated to hits, jigs and reels, along with the band's many stories.
Showtime is 7 p.m. with tickets starting from $39. Dinner can be added for an extra $35. There will be a four-course meal plus one beverage of your choice.
