'The Rolling Stones of Irish Traditional Music' return to Kenmare.

The legendary group De Danann were formed in 1975 in Galway and became one of the most influential bands in traditional Irish music before going their separate ways in 2003. The group released their debut album ‘De Danann’ in 1975 and in total have recorded 14 albums including ‘Anthem’, ‘Star Spangled Molly’, and ‘A Jacket of Batteries’ and achieved chart success, with many of the albums reaching gold and platinum status.

Famous for their cross-cultural experiments they recorded Irish versions of The Beatles ‘Hey Jude’, Handel's ‘The Arrival of The Queen of Sheba’ which they called ‘The Arrival of The Queen of Sheba to Galway’. They also recorded Jewish Klezmer music with Andy Statman and made an album called ‘Half Set in Harlem’ featuring American Gospel singing. Their distinctive approach to the tradition both musically and vocally have been the cornerstone of Irish music for over two decades and is also evident on their latest album 'WonderWaltz'.

Founding member Alec Finn is joined by Eleanor Shanley (vocals), Derek Hickey (accordion), Brian McGrath (banjo/piano), Ronan O'Flaherty (fiddle) and Neill Lyons (bodhrán).
