Kern

DATE: MONDAY 2 MAY
VENUE: BEAULIEU GREAT HALL
TIME: 6.00PM
TICKETS: €10/€8 CONC

Kern is a contemporary folk band from County Louth. Their debut album, False Deceiver, is a true blend, in terms of its mood, its styles and its musicians. Thunderous sets of traditional tunes vie with lyrical, atmospheric songs, all underpinned by the production of legendary Lúnasa and Waterboys bassist Trevor Hutchinson.

The band has their unusual mix of personalities to thank for this. Brendan McCreanor is a thrilling uilleann piper who has worked extensively in both traditional music and in contemporary crossover projects. By contrast, SJ McArdle is a well-known rock and folk musician, a published songwriter and singer (songs from his three albums have featured in film, TV and radio and he has toured extensively). And Barry Kieran is a former Leinster champion fiddler, steeped in the raw, pure music of Oriel.
