"Throughout the years, these international ambassadors of Irish music have maintained their timeless ability to deliver a rollicking, rousing performance of good cheer - one that will soon have you singing and clapping along. Their songs have become anthems of revelry and joy among generation after generation of fans." - BELFAST TELEGRAPH

All band members hail from Ireland, however, The Irish Rovers formed in 1963 in Toronto, Canada. This year's album release is in response to mammoth attention their Drunken Sailor recording has recieved on YouTube. This new album is full of tales from the sea - arrrrgg, including a tribute to The Titanic.

George Millar and his cousin Ian Millar are from Ballymena, original member Wilcil McDowell is from Larne, Sean O'Driscoll is from Cork, and both John Reynolds and percussionist Fred Graham are from Belfast.
