Kila is our headlining band at ShakeFest this year!
To celebrate Shakefest’s 10th Year Milestone, our audience will be treated to the energetic world music of KILA, Ireland’s ultimate trad ensemble who are picking up speed with no indication of slowing down after 25 years! Fans over the years attest to never tiring of their gigs and infectious enthusiasm, and whom many claim to be the ultimate mood enhancer. Formed in 1987, their performances have been said to be ‘one of the most euphoric live experiences a music fan can enjoy. Few other bands can claim to play with such relentless energy and commitment…. Though very much steeped in Irish traditions, Kila filter influences from all over the world’. (Malachy O’Neill, BBC Review).
Kila will play at a special Family-Friendly hour in the early evening at Shakefest, helping set up for further 10th Year Anniversary Celebrations.
Family, festival and evening only tickets are available on www.eventbrite.com
