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. The Kilkennys, Ireland's newest balladeers, come from a city steeped in music, history and folk culture. With passion and pride, The Kilkennys play old Irish folk songs and new songs of their own.
The Kilkenny have been named Ireland’s Most Successful International Folk Band winners in the Sunday Worlds Country Music and Entertainment Awards.
