Kilkenny Roots Festival
Springhill Court Hotel
29th April – 2nd May 2022
The Kilkenny Roots Festival has been running since 1998 and features some of the finest examples of its genre – from Blues, to Cajun and Bluegrass. The festival features a great mix and brings Kilkenny alive over the long weekend. A great event for any fans of Americana music.
Audiences wind their way through the medieval streets sampling the huge range of music in the 30 plus venues, hosting over 40 Irish and international acts, with over 90 ticketed and free shows from early afternoon until late into the night.
There’s a mixture of old and new acts on the free pub gig trail and all styles are catered for, from swing to bluegrass, rockabilly to cajun, folk, blues and beyond.
