Kilkenny Roots Festival Friday 4th - Monday 7th May 2018
The Kilkenny Roots Festival has been running since 1998 and features some of the finest examples of its genre – from Blues, to Cajun and Bluegrass. The festival features a great mix and brings Kilkenny alive over the long weekend. A great event for any fans of Americana music.
HOBAN BAR & BRASSERIE, Sunday 6th May, 10pm.
If you like your music soaked in the traditions of alt country but at the same time given a fresh feel to those classic structures, then look no further. The Needables give a live performance that even the most non-tapping foot can't help but jig.
HOBAN BAR & BRASSERIE, Monday 7th May, 3pm.
They mix a rare blend that is three parts folk, two parts country blues and two parts melodic contemporary rock, all shaken up with a dash of classic songwriting. For those connoisseurs in the know, this cocktail is known as a 'Loudest Whisper'.
