KERN blends the driving uilleann pipes and poignant whistles of Brendan with the dynamic fiddle playing of Barry and the dark, authoritative voice and guitar of SJ. All three men are from County Louth, Ireland and this is reflected in their repertoire, which includes tunes and songs from all over the county as well as self-written new ones. KERN has been featured on RTE Radio 1’s Ceili House and has already played a host of festivals and concerts in Ireland. The band is currently recording an album with Trevor Hutchinson (Lunasa, The Waterboys) for 2015 release.
