The Kilkennys are delighted to announce the release of their eagerly anticipated new album, entitled ‘Blowin’ in the wind’ (released September 2018). The album contains 11 eclectic songs given The Kilkennys magic touch. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Martin Quinn at JAM Studios, Kells, Co. Meath.
Yet again The Kilkennys have made traditional treasures breathe with new life. The band have established themselves as gifted interpreters of a wide range of material. The new album includes such classics as ‘The Dutchman’, ‘Shoals of Herring’ and ‘Follow me up to Carlow’. These songs sit comfortably in their repertoire alongside the iconic ‘Nation once again’ and the masterpiece that is ‘Blowin in the wind’ by Bob Dylan (the lead track), plus many more.
The band continue to tour, thrilling old fans and winning new ones all around the globe. From as far afield as Abu Dubai, Las Vegas to the renowned Barrowlands, Scotland the lads are constantly on the road.
In India they are one of the most successful Irish touring acts ever; their shows sell out when announced and the band are now hailed as superstars!
A concert performance by The Kilkennys is an experience that never fails to excite and bear witness to the power of great music when performed by true artists.
With the release of the new album gathering many honours (including voted Ireland’s Most Successful International Folk Band winners at this year’s Sunday World music awards), the band also celebrated 20 years touring together in 2018.
