If you have not heard of The Kilkennys, you are in for a pleasant surprise. Not only can these young balladeers sing, but they are incredible musicians and performers and have been credited with keeping Irish folk music and ballads alive.
Over the past decade The Kilkennys have emerged from the traditional settings of the Irish pub scene as a group of musicians with the ability to reinvigorate traditional Irish music and ballads and take them to a new generation.
From the humble beginnings of a bunch of young school friends bonded by their love of Irish music, The Kilkennys have toured the length and breadth of Ireland gaining recognition as one of the country’s hardest working bands.
In recent years the band have conquered tour circuits all over Europe and picked up the mantle left by acts such as The Dubliners and The Clancy Brothers.
They shared the stage with world renowned Irish artists like Shane McGowan, Sharon Shannon and Finbar Furey and, after countless performances to Irish communities all over the world The Kilkennys have taken their music to an international stage and have become synonymous with modern Irish music entertaining fans from Boston to Switzerland along the way.
