Tommy Dempsey’s Irish Ceili Band

Return to Previous Page

There have been countless TV, radio and concert appearances in Tommy’s performing career to date, including a hugely successful four-week solo tour of Australia. Over recent years, Tommy has gathered around him a group of highly-experienced multi-instrumentalists to present the traditional music of Ireland to a wider audience. All the tried-and-tested favourite Irish songs are included in a typical performance from Tommy and the band, and many more drawn from Tommy’s seemingly inexhaustible repertoire, along with an infectious mix of traditional dance-tunes.

“All your favourite Irish songs and lots of great tunes, a spot of what you fancy – and plenty of the Blarney!”

Tommy’s Crew are equipped with a high-quality sound-system, fully adaptable to produce crystal-clear sound in venues of all types and sizes.

All you need to do is grab a pint (or three) of the black stuff, sit back … and enjoy a night of great entertainment, great music and great craic!
