Watch: Belfast band the Rapparees cover Pogues classic Fairytale of New York

Belfast folk band the Rapparees have recorded a cover of the classic Pogues Christmas song Fairytale of New York.

The group say they have been fanatical followers of the Shane MacGowan fronted band throughout their musical lives, and their Christmas Pogues tribute concerts have now become an annual tradition.

The group will perform two nights at the Limelight in Belfast on December 22-23, as well as one night at The Academy in Dublin on December 21.

The Rapparees will also be expanded to 12 musicians during the gigs - including piano, brass, bass and percussion to help re-create the magic of such hits as Fiesta, Streams of Whiskey, Sally McLennane, If I Should Fall From Grace With God and many more.

Tickets are available now.
