Kilkenny is a small town in Ireland, from which also the famous Kilkenny beer comes. The name “Kilkenny Kids”, which fits the “K” s of her surnames, and the story that they have been raised with Kilkenny beer from the very beginning, came to a close with Catherine Kuhlmann, Jascha Kemper and Marian Köster ,
In this composition they played from 2007 to 2009. In the summer of 2009, Timo Bardischewski (Bodhran and accordion) was added.
When they needed a show for a concert in early 2011, they turned to Shawn Hellmann. Even after the first rehearsal, they realized: We need him!
In 2012 Bianca Freitag (vocals, Bodhran, Tin Whistle) joined. In 2013, Christian Ventker (bass, backing vocals) completed the quartet. In this formation the Kilkenny Band played, among other things, 25 days at the Medieval travelling festival MPS in 2014. In addition, they recorded their first two CDs during this time.
After previous guest performances, Dennis and Raphi joined the band in 2015. On the 26th of November, 2016, the new album “Roving” has been released
