Kilcannon Irish Band is a high-energy group of experienced and talented musicians who play an eclectic mixture of contemporary and traditional Irish music in a unique and lively style. The Kilcannon band members have a wealth of experience in all genres of music including rock, R&B, blues, metal, classical, folk, punk and jazz and have been performing for decades all around the world. This mix of influences and experience has resulted in a unique sound that continues to develop with every passing day.

Kilcannon was formed in March 2016 by former Shebeen Irish Band member Richard Barker. The aim was to establish a dynamic, unique and upbeat sound by bringing together experienced and talented musicians who respected the traditions of Irish folk-music whilst at the same time always searching for originality in both interpretation and delivery.

Kilcannon Irish Band can perform as a duo, trio or four-piece as required. All Kilcannon band members have experience of many types of events and venues ranging from pubs, clubs and small family parties to international festivals/tours and TV/Radio appearances.

The Kilcannon repertoire is generally traditional Irish songs and tunes played by the likes of the Dubliners, Fureys, Planxty and the Clancy Brothers, as well as more contemporary songs from the likes of the Pogues, Steve Earle, the Corrs, the Saw Doctors and Goats Don’t Shave. Kilcannon Irish Band also has the ability to provide dance music and calling for Ceilidh events and weddings if required.
