A MONTH of live music continues at Gorey Little Theatre with two more gigs lined up to round out November.
On Friday, November 26, singer-songwriter Mick Hanly will take to the stage while the Kilkennys will rock the house on Saturday, November 27 from 8 p.m.
Mick Hanly said that artists are really enjoying getting back to what they do best.
“The Joni Mitchell line says ‘You never miss what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone’ and that has been ringing in my head like an alarm clock for the last 15 months.
“It’s a wonderful feeling when I realise that I’ve hit the spot with a song and even more so when I realise that the audience feels that too,” he said.
“Throughout the Covid shutdown, I’ve really missed these moments and I’m sure many of my fellow musicians did too.
“We all respond to applause and as performing artists we ache for applause as it’s acknowledgement of the countless hours put into honing skills and presentation. I’ll have three live gigs under my belt by the time I get to Gorey so I’ll be flying fit and I look forward to seeing everyone”.
Traditional Irish in every way, The Kilkennys are noted for their dynamic arrangements, energetic performances and charismatic rapport with audiences across the globe.
Their aim is to pick up the mantle left by acts such as The Dubliners and The Clancy Brothers and they have shared the stage with Shane McGowan, Sharron Shannon and Finbar Furey.
The band began touring the length and breadth of Ireland in 1998 and, a decade later, named themselves ‘The Kilkennys’ after their beloved home. The group has evolved through the years and are anchored by founding members Davey Cashin, Tommy Mackey, Mick Martin and newest member Josh O’Loughlin.
