It's not that the Irish are cynical. It's rather that they have a wonderful lack of respect for everything and everybody” - Brendan Behan

Dreams Of Freedom

Wedding Drinks Reception Review

Lads, what can I say! Since we booked the wedding there was never a question of who we wanted to book to play our drinks reception, and as always ye totally exceeded all our expectations. Ye set the tone and the bar high for what ended up as the most fantastic day. From the start ye injected an energy into the crowd which lasted throughout the night. From our collective and fantastic rendition of Grace to the spine tingling Loansome Boatman ye covered it all. People can't talk any more highly of ye and still do almost a month out. Thank ye so much for being part of our day and beginning the celebrations in such style.

Ye entertained us throughout Covid and nearly every Friday night since in the Brogue, it was an absolute pleasure having ye as part of our must wonderful day. Thanks for the memories and can wait for many more!

Show Recommendation

We highly recommend Dreams of Freedom! We visited Dingle, Ireland for my nephew's wedding and saw them in The Dingle Pub. The storytelling, music and interaction with the audience was amazing! We can't wait until they come to Pennsylvania, USA. They are a must see band!

Dreams Of Freedom

Irish Ballad Folk & Rebel Band

Dreams Of Freedom are a Ballad Folk and Rebel band who hail from Co Kerry in the southwest of Ireland. Dreams Of Freedom strive on their commitment to carrying on the proud culture and traditions of Ireland through songs and stories. Having a great time and enjoying the experience of one of our gigs is very much our number one priority.  

Dreams Of Freedom work hard promoting the culture of Ireland through songs and music. This is one of their passions, telling the story of Irish history through song and music and in their own small part trying to preserve the long history of Ireland, from Famines and Rebellions to old stories and songs.

When you step into a Dreams Of Freedom gig you will be met with instant energy and desire, you will feel the true spirit of Ireland's songs and music and you will see what bringing these songs to you means too them. So go find a Dreams Of Freedom gig and experience the excitement for yourself.
