Considered by many to be one of the greatest Irish folk singers ever. Immediately distinguishable by his large ginger fro, Luke was heavily involved in the folk music revival that started in the 1960s. Most notable for being a member of the Dubliners for most of his career, he also did solo work and was heavily active politically.
When I listen to Luke Kelly's rendition of The Rocky Road to Dublin, my hair gets a little redder and I have an urge to drink a pint.
