Kilkenny Arts Festival presents Mick McAuley & John Doyle

Accordion player Mick McAuley and guitarist John Doyle are two of the most accomplished traditional musicians of their generation.

Both former members of Irish-American supergroup Solas, they’ve played together for years, working with illustrious names in rock, country and folk, but it’s only recently that they’ve recorded as a duo. Their self-titled debut album, mixing their own songs with arrangements of traditional songs, accompanied by stirring vocals, was rapturously received, and their live performances offer ample demonstration that you don’t need electric guitars and a drum kit to play with the intensity of a rock band.

Please note: this a fully seated show.
