David Hull Promotions Presents the Kilfenora Céilí Band on Saturday 18th January 2020 at the Ulster Hall, Belfast,
The renowned Kilfenora Céilí Band is a globally-recognised name in the world of folk and traditional music and will play for the first time in Belfast Saturday 18th January 2020 at The Ulster Hall.
Audiences will be treated to an uplifting, energetic, entertaining show by this legendary group and be taken on a journey of rich musical heritage. Expertly choreographed, highly rhythmic traditional tunes, beautiful songs and witty repartee.
The show features tracks from their current studio album “Both Sides Now”. After 105 years in the business, the world-renowned Kilfenora Céilí Band are seen by many aficionados as the quintessential Irish céilí band.
“Their core repertoire of dance music, punctuated with an incomparable lift and rhythm, defines an unbroken tradition that dates from the beginning of the twentieth century. Despite this link with the past, their recent recordings and concert performances point to a broadening of the perceived boundaries of their genre.
“Collaborations with a diverse range of song and dance artists, experimentation with repertoire outside of the dance domain and complex harmonic arrangements speak to an ensemble who are pioneering new and exciting performance contexts for the céilí band genre.
“While acknowledging and incorporating the past, the Kilfenora thrives on creativity and innovation.The band has travelled extensively, visiting Britain, Northern Ireland, Europe and the U.S. They have performed at Glastonbury twice and in 2009 headlined on the Acoustic Stage.
“The band has also performed concerts in Milwaukee, Lincoln Centre New York, Ireland’s National Concert Hall and Cork Opera House to name but a few. The Kilfenora features fiddles, bass, cello, flutes, banjo, concertina and accordion, with what “Folk Roots” magazine called “one of the tightest rhythm sections in the world”. A show to be experienced and not to be missed.
