Kilkenny Roots Festival

Kilkenny Roots Festival which celebrated 25 Years in 2023, 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.

Friday 3rd May to Monday 6th May 2024

Audiences wind their way through the medieval streets sampling the huge range of music in the 30 plus venues, hosting over 40 Irish and international acts, with over 90 ticketed and free shows from early afternoon until late into the night.
There’s a mixture of old and new acts on the free pub gig trail and all styles are catered for, from swing to bluegrass, rockabilly to cajun, folk, blues and beyond.

Join us in Hoban Bar & Brasserie for our Roots Festival Gigs 

"By now a national institution and an international buzz-phrase among the Americana / Roots movement…Ireland’s most compact and hospitable music festival, where virtually everything is low-key but high grade". Irish Times
