Event Details

The Kilfenora Céilí Band are seen by many aficionados as the quintessential 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 their musical palette. Collaborations with a diverse range of singers, musicians and artists, including producer, Dónal Lunny (see Producing the Goods), along with 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 genre. While acknowledging and incorporating the past, the Kilfenora thrives on creativity and innovation. Engaging, uplifting and utterly enjoyable, this legendary group take their rich musical heritage into the future with a show that is expertly choreographed, boasting highly rhythmic traditional tunes, together with beautiful songs and witty repartee.
