The legendary Irish Rovers deliver a high-spirited, rousing performance of song, wit and humor. These international ambassadors of Irish music have charmed and entertained people around the world, and continue to delight audiences with their exciting stage shows. The Irish Rovers have never lost their timeless ability to deliver a rollicking performance of good cheer that will have the audience singing and clapping along. These seven bards from Northern Ireland light up the evening with their fiddles, bodhrans, guitars, accordions, and more.
The story of the Irish Rovers starts in Canada in 1963, when 16-year old George Millar and 23-year old Jim Ferguson, both new emigrants from Northern Ireland, met in Toronto at an Irish function. They ended up singing together 'til dawn; and so the Irish Rovers were launched. Some of their biggest hits include, "The Unicorn Song," and "Wasn't that a Party?" Critics agree that there are few shows that can compare with the Rovers, whose masterful story-telling and sing-along style thrills their audience. Their songs are upbeat, up-tempo and up-lifting. Each one is fresh, clever and entertaining, singer Joe Millar's chit-chat between songs is fall-down funny. From their perch on the stage, they create a homey, Irish pub-like atmosphere. You can almost see the sawdust on the floor and the pints of stout being passed around the house.
And what better way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day and the Annual Westhampton Beach St. Patrick's Day Parade than with traditional Irish music? After the Parade, come hear the Irish Rovers sing anthems of revelry and ballads about their native land--you'll be clapping, dancing, and laughing the night away!
