The Legend of Luke Kelly show, created by Chris Kavanagh has been going now for nearly 20 years, and it is a celebration of the life, music and song of Ireland's most famous Dubliner Luke Kelly.

It is totally  endorsed by Luke Kelly's family,and at some shows Luke's brothers Jimmy and Paddy Kelly have performed with Chris Kavanagh on stage.

Over the last 5 years this show has sold out Dublin's Vicar Street for Luke's anniversary show ,in addition to also selling out the Cork Opera house.

Chris Kavanagh who performs the show with his band, has kept Luke Kelly's memory alive in a very authentic and respectful way. Chris does not try to imitate Luke Kelly, but he sings in his own very distinctive voice. On the night you will be moved by Luke's most famous ballads, Raglan Road, Scorn Not His Simplicity, The Night Visiting Song, Wild Rover,Black Velvet Band plus many more.
