(CBS) If you see a group of fans breaking into Irish "gig pits" then you know you're definitely at a Young Dubliners concert.

The Young Dubliners rocked the Second Cup Café stage with an ode to the Emerald Isle through an upbeat and heartfelt performance.

The band has made it their mission to embrace their Irish heritage with a traditional sound - infused with a modern rock edge.

Influenced by the Pogues, Waterboys, U2, Celtic musician Christy Moore and Irish band The Furey Brothers, the Young Dubliners blend Irish folk, Irish pop songs and fierce guitar riffs into their music.

429 Records recently released their latest album, "With All Due Respect, The Irish Sessions."

Vocalist and guitarist Keith Roberts refers to the band's song selection "as the best of the best representing poets, playwrights and vagabonds, indeed, centuries-old traditional melodies shimmer bookended by distinctive romps through the songcraft of Shane McGowan which brush up against the wistfully sad lyrics of Irish poet Patrick Kavanagh."

Formed by Dublin natives Keith Roberts and Paul O'Toole in 1988, the Young Dubliners paved their way to the Los Angeles pub scene where they built a solid fanbase, but never left their Irish roots too far behind.

Although several band members have come and gone since its inception, the Young Dubliners' love for Irish music has always been constant.
