The Kells play primarily what is called Traditional Irish Music. This is in essence the “soul music” of the Irish race. With a genuine passion and a sincere sense of purpose the Kells pour their hearts into playing lively jigs, spirited reels and haunting airs with songs that reach deep into the moral and emotional part of human nature. Instruments such as the uilleann pipes, tin whistle and flute provide the brilliant melodies, while the guitar and bodhran drum provide intricate layering, heart-beat and drive. Together, when played by the Kells, it produces the inspired and mighty sound called “Hardcore Irish Trad.” It is music for all ages – and for the ages.
To The Kells, playing music for others to enjoy is neither burden nor chore – it is rather a blessing and a privilege. This authentic gratitude is evident in the delivery of the music and the camaraderie shared by the band and its audience.
Music by The Kells is appropriate for intimate gatherings, raucous events and everything in between. The Kells have played nationally and often at major Irish festivals, concert halls, church and community festivals, folk festivals, ceilis, conventions, weddings, receptions, pubs, special fund-raising events, and private parties. It is practically a band for all occasions.
