Kilfenora Céilí Band
August 6 @ 8:30 pm
SATURDAY 6TH AUGUST | 8.30PM | ST. PAUL’S CHURCH N91KP29
The world-renowned Kilfenora Céilí Band are seen by many aficionadoes as the quintessential Irish céilí band. Their core repertoire of dance music, puntuated 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. 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 in what Sharon Shannon calls “Fantastic, feel-good, happy, lively music”.
