Dublin man & multi-instrumentalist Chris Kavanagh has been singing & playing music since he was 3 years old. His Grandmother
instilled a love of folk music in him from this tender age, with bands such as The Dubliners & The Clancy Brothers played regularly
in his childhood home. Chris is well known for his passionate performances of folk singer Luke Kelly's songs with his successful
band "The Legend of Luke Kelly", but he is also an extremely skilled songwriter & composer. His 2011 album "Voice of the People"
showcases his skills to perfection, & Chris's musical arrangements around the songs, coupled with his exceptional singing talents
bring a long-awaited freshness to the folk music scene. In 2011, Chris was asked by the late Al O'Donnell to perform at one of his
shows remembering Luke Kelly, & it was there that he met The Dubliners for the first time. On hearing Chris's album, John Sheahan
asked him to perform with The Dubliners on their German tour. Chris received rave reviews in Germany, with the audience on their
feet from the moment he sang his first song. Shortly after this, Chris was asked to perform with The Dubliners again at their 50th
anniversary concert in Dublin's Vicar Street, which is a regular haunt for Chris, as he performs a yearly concert to mark Luke Kelly's
anniversary. With the regular attendance of John Sheahan & Luke's family, as well as past special guests such as Damien Dempsey,
Declan O'Rourke, Shay Healy & Christy Dignam, it is always a very special occasion. Chris & his band have performed all over
Ireland as well as abroad, in countries such as the UK, Germany, Switzerland, America & Australia. He is currently working on a
new album with his co-writer Hilary Kavanagh (bass guitar/vocals) & traditional musician Joe Finn, co-composer of the haunting
tune "Falcon's Call" (uilleann pipes, flute/whistles, fiddle). He is also
joined on stage by Michael Howard (classical guitarist/composer)
