About The Kilfenora Ceili Band
Regarded by afficianadoes as the quintessential Irish céilí band, The Kilfenora Céilí band together with singer Edel Vaughan and dancers Laura Minogue, Deirdra Kiely and world champions Michael and Matthew Gardiner, perform an uplifting, energetic and entertaining show making this a must attend event t. Engaging, uplifting and utterly enjoyable, this traditional super group take their rich musical heritage into the future with a show that is expertly choreographed boasting highly rhythmic traditional tunes, together with beautifully sung airs and witty repartee. Bringing their music to new audiences is a constant quest for the Kilfenora Céilí Band who have performed at Glastonbury, New York’s prestigious Lincoln Center as well as tours around Ireland and Europe. This is enhanced by recent recordings and television appearances, not least on RTE’s The Late Late Show, Fleadh TV, TG4 and of course their most recent album Now is The Hour (2015) which points to a broadening of the perceived boundaries of their genre. Through collaborations with a diverse range of song and dance artists from former Riverdance lead Michael Donnellan to singer/songwriters Don Stiffe and Mike Hanrahan, to experimentation with repertoire, this band are pioneering new and exciting performance contexts for the céilí band genre. The Kilfenora Céilí Band is made up of leader John Lynch (banjo, mandolin), Claire Griffin (accordion), Tim Collins (concertina), Gary Shannon (flute, whistle), Anthony Quigney (flute, whistle, piano), AnneMarie McCormack (fiddle), Sinéad Heagney (fiddle/viola), Anne Rynne (fiddle), Eimear Howley (fiddle & banjo), Fintan McMahon (piano), Sean Griffin (drums) and Brian O’Grady (double bass) and Sharon Howley (cello). “Fantastic, feel-good, happy, lively music” Sharon Shannon
