Back due to popular demand!
Renowned for their musicianship and vocal abilities, The Kilkennys have gained a reputation for revitalising traditional Irish music and adding their own touch of passion and youthful energy.
Returning to many venues where they played previously with their acclaimed tribute to the music of The Clancy Brothers - 'Fine Girl Ye Are.'
Formed at a very young age, The Kilkennys have toured all over Ireland and have taken their music as far afield as Las Vegas, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, Abu Dhabi and the Czech Republic. The band have almost three million YouTube hits and a packed schedule of shows for 2018 all over the world.
The Kilkennys released their new single 'Homeland’ featuring Arís Celebration Choir in 2017. Written by legendary singer songwriter Mick Hanly who lives in Kilkenny and featuring Ireland’s best loved choir Arís Celebration Choir (formerly known as Kilkenny Presentation School Choir – who reached 2016 Britain’s Got Talent semi-final). The Kilkennys have distinguished their sound with an arsenal of instruments and harmonies.
The single is also set to feature on The Kilkennys forthcoming album and they worked with Veronica McCann. The music video was shot over three days in Kilkenny City and County. It showcases the authentic atmosphere of Ballykeeffe Amphitheatre situated in the quaint Kilkenny countryside.
Davey Cashin, Rob Campion, Tommy Mackey and Davey Long are excited about bringing their brand of Irish music to a UK audience. Come along to a show and join in the fun for a great evening of music and song!
