**This is a fully standing show**

Rapparees return to London bringing their festive homage to the Pogues to the
London Irish Centre, join us on Saturday the 16th 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!
