    The lineup of musical entertainment for Raglan Road’s Mighty Festival includes:

    Young Dubliners
    Young Dubliners are quite possibly Celtic rock’s hardest working band, playing hundreds of shows to thousands of fans across the US and Europe every year. Known for their exciting live performances, the Young Dubliners bring their hearty rock and Irish infused tunes to the Raglan Road stage.

    Back by popular demand, Elevation is without question the most successful U2 tribute band in the world. With their huge repertoire and unparalled experience, Elevation is the only band to call when you want to bring the most authentic sights and sounds of U2 to your audience without actually having to bring in U2 themselves.

    The Maguires
    This traditional Irish family band from Wicklow comprises Emma, 17, on fiddle, flute and whistle; Aoife, 15, on concertina and uilleann pipes; Sean, 12, on bodhrán; and their dad, Philip, on guitar. The band's repertoire includes traditional favourites and modern tunes with syncopated, infectious rhythms sure to wow Mighty Festival crowds. Catch them performing at Raglan Road March 14th – April 3rd.

    The Byrne Brothers
    An exceptionally talented traditional Irish music family from Donegal. They are Luca, 13 (button accordion); Finn, 11 (banjo,mandolin and whistle); Dempsey, 8, (whistle and bodhran); and father Tommy (guitar, Uilleann pipes, fiddle, whistles, bagpipes and bodhran). Their show combines exciting traditional Irish tunes with modern dance beats, and they love to interact with every audience.

    The Raglan Roots Coalition
    10 years down the Road, Raglan felt it was time to shake its boogie - Roots style. Cue The Raglan Roots Coalition. A coming together of Ireland's obnoxiously fine young talent - set fare to blow the cream off your pint. Think soul-rocking Celtic bluegrass with some hip-swingin', knee-shakin' breath stealin funky roots beats and your only half way there.

    This inspiring all -female trio includes Emma Robinson (flute, whistle), Joanna Boyle (banjo, vocals) and Alison Crossey (bodhran, guitar). They grew up listening to and playing traditional Irish music, winning numerous awards at County, Ulster and All Ireland competitions, quickly gaining themselves a fine reputation in traditional music circles. Blending together their rich musical backgrounds, Briste creates a fresh and exciting mix of country, folk and Irish traditional music.

    Reel Republic
    Hailing from the southwest corner of Ireland, Aisling Egan-Sage (fiddle); Liam O'Keefe (box, vocals); and Coin Foley (guitar, vocals) are Reel Republic, three seriously talented musicians always pushing to make the next gig better than the last. They will keep you entertained with a mix of traditional Irish ballads and modern Irish songs

    Out The Gap
    Niall McIlroy (guitar, ukulele bass, whistles and flute); Deordre Ni Mheachair (fiddle); and Aidan Byrne (guitar, vox, keys and percussion) make up the pub's newest house band performing a sweet combination of innate musicianship, beautiful tine playing and fairly outrageous virtuosity. They love putting on a vibrant and energetic show for their fans.

    The Raglan Road Dancers
    The Raglan Road Dancers plucked from the stages of the most famed Irish Dance shows perform throughout the Mighty Festival.

    Cover charge of $10 will apply to each guest 18 and over on March 17 only.
