Episode 26: Keith Roberts

The Young Dubliners are a hard working, long touring American rock band who bring an upbeat vibe, Celtic influences and thoughtful lyrics together in a musical package fronted by singer, songwriter and guitar player Keith Roberts, who joins Mark on the podcast. The “Dubs,” like all touring rock bands, are struggling to find a way forward during these unprecedented times. Mark talks to Keith about life in the before and life in the after pandemic and Keith reveals the hardships of being in a working rock band who quite literally aren’t allowed to work. From making Youtube videos to recording bits and strands of musical ideas, as well as becoming a baker, a fisherman and a wine and whiskey aficionado, Roberts opens up in characteristic good humor and talks about how to face what’s next.
