As the luck of the Irish would have it, St Helens Theatre Royal has a great night of live Irish music lined-up to get you in the Celtic spirit and transport you to the Emerald Isle.

Ireland’s finest ballad group, The Kilkennys will get the crowd going with an evening of live music at St Helens Theatre Royal on Friday, June 17.

The Kilkennys UK Tour 2016 marks the group’s return to mainland UK and to many venues where they played previously with their acclaimed tribute to the music of The Clancy Brothers - Fine Girl Ye Are.

Renowned for their musicianship and vocal abilities, The Kilkennys have gained a reputation for revitalising traditional Irish music and adding their own touch of passion and youthful energy.

Formed at a very young age, this four-piece, traditional Irish band has been entertaining audiences all over the country, and internationally for the past ten years, enthralling audiences with their energy, passion and musical talents.

Known as one of the hardest working bands in Ireland, The Kilkennys perform the length and breadth of Ireland up to five nights a week and have taken their music as far afield as Las Vegas, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, Abu Dhabi and the Czech Republic.

The band have almost three million YouTube hits and a packed schedule of shows for 2016 all over the world. Plus, they have shared the stage with some of Ireland’s most prominent folk icons, including Shane McGowan, Finbarr Furey and the late Ronnie Drew.

Band members Davey Cashin, Rob Campion, Tommy Mackey and Davey Long are excited about bringing their brand of Irish music to St Helens. And they are sure to perform some of their latest hits from their album The Colour of Freedom which was released earlier this month.

Theatre manager Chantelle Nolan said: “The Kilkennys are, without a doubt, one of Ireland’s best bands and we’re so excited to welcome them to St Helens for what promises to be a great evening of music and song!”
