The Rapparees return to Manchester bringing their festive homage to the Pogues to the Irish World Heritage Centre, join us on Friday the 8th of December to kick the Christmas season off with a bang.
Being on tour as support to Shane MacGowan & the Popes early on in the life of the Rapparees galvanised their appreciation and understanding of their musical heroes, already evident in the fact the band are named from a lyric in Terry Woods’ ‘Young Ned of the Hill’.
The set is woven exactly as expected, between the madness and genius of Shane’s song writing, Spider’s driving whistle/beer tray and the meandering melodies of James Fearnley on accordion.
Expect to hear all the hits – A Rainy Night in Soho, Streams of Whiskey, Sally Maclennane, If I should Fall from Grace with God, The Body of an American and of course, the Fairytale itself.
If you like The Pogues, this tribute show is not to be missed! The Rapparees are returning to The Irish World heritage Centre on Friday 8th December 2023. Support act on stage from 8pm!
This is the perfect way to celebrate Christmas, so book early to avoid disappointment.
