One of the last great Irish bands of the Irish music revival of the 1960's will be performing a benefit concert at the New Point Fire Company in Keansburg.

The Wolf Tones are named after Theobold Wolftone a famous Irish revolutionary patriot from the 1798 Irish revolt. He fought bravely in trying to unite the Irish against the discriminatory and racist policies of the english government in Ireland. Among many of his famous quotes: "If the men of property will not support us, they must fall. Our strength shall come from that great and respectable class, the men of no property" and "To unite Protestant, Catholic and Dissenter under the common name of Irishmen in order break the connection with England, the never failing source of all our political evils, that was my aim".

Wolfe Tone was sentenced to death for his involvement in the 1798 Rebellion but in true Celtic character he took his own life instead of allowing the enemy to defile him, this was something Celtic warriors have done in battle going back to their fighting with the Romans and Greeks.

The Wolfe Tones have been playing their brand of Irish music since the early 1960's. Many of the Wolfe Tones contemporaries such as the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem and the Dubliners have long been gone. Their songs of Irish life, rebellion, war, protest and fun is not a common thing to see.

This Friday March 14th in Keansburg at the Newpoint Fire Company - 192 Carr Ave. Come out and support the Keansburg Fire and Ambulance Core.

For tickets: 732-259-1028
