Band members hail from Ireland and one from Scotland, however The Irish Rovers formed in Toronto, Canada. They have produced over 40 albums in North America with many more internationally. The band's new album "The Irish Rovers, 50 Years" is being released at concerts this year o their 50th Anniversary Tour. The days of the long tours are coming to an end for these lads as they are now completing one last world tour. After that, they will finally be available for special events, festivals and longer stays. International touring will happen only on a very limited scale. The 2012 album release was in response to mammoth attention their Drunken Sailor recording recieved on YouTube. It brought them back to the radio airwaves across North America and attracted a younger generation of fan worldwide. The album is full of tales from the sea, including a tribute to The Titanic marking its 100th anniversary. George Millar and his cousin Ian Millar are both from Ballymena, original member Wilcil McDowell is from Larne, Sean O'Driscoll is from Cork, bodhran player Fred Graham is from Belfast, keybordist Morris Crum from Carnlough, whistle/flute player Geoffrey Kelly from Dumfries, Scotland, and fiddler Gerry O'Connor is from Dundalk.
