The world-renowned Kilfenora Céilí Band visits Skerries!
We are delighted to welcome the Kilfenora Céilí Band to our festival weekend.
After 105 years in the business the world-renowned Kilfenora Céilí Band are seen by many aficionados as the quintessential Irish céilí band. Their core repertoire of dance music, punctuated with an incomparable lift and rhythm, defines an unbroken tradition that dates from the beginning of the twentieth century. Despite this link with the past, their recent recordings and concert performances point to a broadening of the perceived boundaries of their genre. Collaborations with a diverse range of song and dance artists, experimentation with repertoire outside of the dance domain and complex harmonic arrangements speak to an ensemble who are pioneering new and exciting performance contexts for the céilí band genre.
While acknowledging and incorporating the past, the Kilfenora thrives on creativity and innovation.
