This is a short introduction to the band and a brief look at some of our music - for full details of the band check out the band tab on the left, or to see where we are playing next, check the diary page. Available and booked dates are shown on the planner tab under the Extras page.
KISS THE BLARNEY is a traditional (ish) Irish band, playing music both from the Irish tradition and from contemporary bands and artists such as the Saw Doctors or Van Morrison.
We play everything from stomping chorus songs such as the Wild Rover and Black Velvet Band to the more reflective ballads like Carrickfergus - though we tend to concentrate on the more uptempo and cheerful Irish material!
The band is led by the singing of John and Arthur, supported by John's bass and guitar, driven mightily along by Robbie’s guitar and banjo while Arthur plays everything from fiddle and accordion to mandolin, flute, harmonica and sax.
