…in Story & Song
As the (very recognisable) son of legendary Dubliner Ronnie Drew, actor and musician Phelim Drew realises that he has some very big shoes to fill. Growing up he says he was in awe of “the electricity generated by a Dubliners show”. Ten years after Ronnie’s passing, Phelim has returned to his musical legacy and the wealth of material has reawakened not only a sense of pride but also a new sense of appreciation. With the upcoming show at St Stephen’s Church (Pepper Canister) Phelim will be singing some of the songs made famous by Ronnie, Luke, Barney, Ciaran and John as well as other personal favourites by other artists including The Pogues and Paul Brady. A man with a big voice and a bigger personality, we are thrilled to have Phelim in the line-up for Tradfest 2019!
