Irish musical memories at the Alban Arena
FOLK and ballad group The Kilkennys perform a tribute to The Clancy Brothers at the Alban Arena next Sunday, February 20.
It is more than a quarter of a century since The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem were last heard singing together but their memory lives on as Ireland’s greatest-ever musical export.
The Arena show, narrated by Cathal MacCabe, features The Kilkennys who are renowned for their musicianship and vocal ability. They have gained a reputation for revitalising traditional Irish music and adding their own touch of youth and energy.
Made up of Adam and Davey Cashin, Tommy Mackey and Robbie Campion, they have toured all over Ireland and further afield in the past 12 years and were recently signed to Dolphin Discs, a record label long associated with Irish music boasting such names as The Clancy Brothers, Shane McGowan and The Dubliners.
The performance begins at 7.30pm and tickets at �15 are available from the box office on 01727 844488 or go to www.alban-arena.co.uk
