Kilkenny Rhythm & Roots Festival
Still finding its feet somewhat, the Kilkenny Roots Festival is destined perhaps to become one of the premiere music events in Ireland. The line-up of events attracts a variety of international and home-grown acts from the world of alt-country, bluegrass and folk. Past performances included an appearance by Mercury Rev's Adam Synder who helped to give the festival the street-cred it so rightly deserved. Check the local press or phone for details on the upcoming program. See their website for event times.
The Kilkenny Rhythm & Roots festival is one of the best festivals you will ever have the pleasure of going to.
One of the main things that this festival is able to do is bring you suberb acts before everybody hears of them.
Examples would be
Ryan Adams, Jouse Rouse and Ray Lamontagne(to name a few) All these acts played here in small venues to no more than 50 people
