"Irish Kitchen Music from the home, the hearth, and the heart"
Kennedy’s Kitchen is family and friends, gathering on Thursday evenings for dinner, laughter and music since 1998, rooted in traditional Irish Music, jigs, reels, hornpipes, recitations, stories, songs… and adding their own compositions along the way. It's a mix of all things Irish from traditional, sean-nos, to pub songs and sing-a-longs.
Kennedy's Kitchen has been making music and telling stories together since 1998, everything from backyard birthday parties and weddings to concert halls and festivals. They have traveled as far as New York City and Florida, and releasing five CDs along the way, including their 2013 release, The Birds Upon The Trees, now with over 2 million streams on Spotify. They appear frequently in local venues such as Fiddler's Hearth, The Box Factory for the Arts, and The Acorn Theatre.....as well as at national Irish festivals such as Michigan Irish Fest, Milwaukee Irish Fest, Erin Fest in Peoria, IL, Dayton Irish Fest in Dayton, OH, and Chicago's Irish American Heritage Center Irish Fest, LaCrosse Irish Fest, and Osh Kosh Irish Fest. With a modern sound, a high energy, they are deeply are rooted in traditional Irish music... jigs, reels, hornpipes, aires, stories, and songs; but it's all about having a good laugh, and if needed, a good cry. It's Kitchen music from the home, the hearth, and the heart. Much of it is original: songs and recitations as well as newly composed jigs, reels, and aires. From toe-tapping to deeply moving, it's always fun. The band is lead by joHn Kennedy, award winning singer and guitar player. It's Kitchen Music from the home, the hearth, and the heart.
