From the fourth episode of Festival Folk featuring The Dubliners, band members Barney McKenna and John Sheahan play a mandolin duet ‘The Three Sea Captains’.

The song is introduced by Sheehan as 'a nice set dance tune' and he finishes the number on the fiddle.

'Festival Folk' is a six-part series featuring The Dubliners, with special guests Jim McCann and Paddy Reilly recorded in concert at the National Stadium in Dublin.

Barney McKenna was a founding member of The Dubliners. John Sheahan joined the band two years later in 1964.

This episode of Festival Folk was broadcast on 18 November 1985.
