The Kilkennys

The Kilkennys

Details

The Kilkennys play old Irish folk songs and new songs of their own with passion and pride, and in 2018 they were named Ireland's Most Successful International Folk Band in the prestigious Sunday World Country Music and Entertainment Awards, at which they also performed.

Ireland's newest balladeers come from a city steeped in music, history and folk culture. Kilkenny is famous for its long history of brewing fine Irish ale and beer. The brewery may be gone, but the music plays on. The Kilkennys are the first group named after the beloved marble city. They are also the first band named after an Irish city in 50 years - since Luke Kelly and company started under the name The Dubliners.

The group has evolved through the years and is anchored by founding members Davey Cashin (vocals, mandolin, banjo, guitar, whistles), Tommy Mackey (bass, acoustic guitar, vocals), long-time member Robbie Campion (banjo, guitar, madolin, vocals) and newest member Mick Martin ( bodhran, uilleann pipes, low whistles, guitar, vocals).

Seeking to preserve their status for re-introducing Irish folk and ballads to a young audience while capturing the hearts of the more seasoned traditional music lover, The Kilkennys' popularity continues to grow with every energy-filled, toe-tapping and hand-clapping performance.
