The Kilkennys

10:00 pm, FREE


The Kilkennys are a 4-piece traditional Irish ballad group, who have been entertaining audiences all over the country, and internationally for the past ten years, with their unique and accomplished style of playing and vocal talent. Known as one of the hardest working bands in Ireland, they perform the length and breath of the country up to five nights a week. Up to now, they have been performing as Uisce Beatha, but due to various crucial reasons and the fact that a few bands with the same name have sprung up around the world, the decision was taken to change the name to The Kilkennys, as the boys are very proud of their black and amber roots! This name change coincided with the band signing up to Dolphin Records, the record company of such Irish music legends as Mary and Frances Black, Liam Clancy, Dolores Keane, Ronnie Drew, Jack L and Sonny Knowles. Renowned for their incredible musicianship and vocal abilities, The Kilkennys have gained a reputation for revitalising traditional Irish music and adding their own touch of youth and energy. Over the past 12 years the band have toured all over Ireland and have taken their music as far afield as Las Vegas, Germany, Holland, Switzerland and the Czech Republic. They were recently signed to Dolphin Discs, a record label long associated with Irish music boasting such names as The Clancy Brothers, Shane McGowen and The Dubliners.
