The Rapparees - A Fairytale of The Pogues
SUNDAY 10TH DECEMBER 2023
General Admission Standing
Age Limit : Over 18 Only
The Rapparees return to Edinburgh bringing their festive homage to the Pogues to the Liquid Rooms, join us for a Sunday show 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!
