Kilkenny city 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 Kilkennys, Ireland’s newest balladeers come from a city steeped in music, history and folk culture. The band’s following is growing internationally and their upward curve has been sure and steady. With passion and pride, The Kilkennys play old Irish folk songs and new songs of their own. Much like the monks of St Francis Abbey who first brewed ale 350 years ago, The Kilkennys are meticulous craftsmen.
They pour their hearts into their music.
