Young Dubliners Bring the Celtic Rock to Pasadena

Pasadena, Ca – The Young Dubliners were playing a new venue in Pasadena called the Rose and we decided to check it out. If you have never seen the Young Dubliners live then I don’t think that I could adequately describe it for you, it is just something you need to experience live yourself. They are the true representation of Celtic Rock.

The band consists of Keith Roberts – Vocals & Acoustic Guitar, Brendan Holmes – Bass & Vocals, Bob Boulding – Guitar & Vocals, Dave Ingraham – Drums/Percussion, and Chas Waltz – Violin/Keyboard/Harp/Mandolin & Vocals.

Before they went on, Keith graciously gave me a few minutes of his time and I couldn’t have asked for a better person to interview for my first time. To hear everything we talked about, please see the video below.

About the Author

Love music! Being around it, watching it, sometimes even playing it since I was a little Trouble-Maker growing up in the Orange County California Punk Scene. I was that one kid who would scale walls and fences just to get a glimpse in side venues to see big bands like Iron Maiden, Circle Jerks, Van Halen ,Black Flag, etc, etc. My past job's has taking me to many cool places. I worked as a PR Asst that has helped with actors & actresses. I have also helped a few bands with their bookings, promos and some management opportunities. For me, music has always been my drug even when I found myself caught up in the drug scene here in the Los Angeles area where I now call home. Today I'm proud to say I've been clean & sober from drug use since 2000. Rock is what I'm mostly into! "Shit that moves you, Shit that has heart and soul." Says the late great Dimebag. I'm currently working as a west coast rep for the radio program Maximum Threshold Radio @ ( You can find me @ where you can see my many journey's into the music scene. MTR: Show email: Email:
