THERE will be an exciting concert by Kila in the Courthouse in Tinahely on Saturday, February 24.
Kíla have been bringing their energetic, creative and wildly exuberant music to festivals and venues around Europe and are still riding high on the success of this year’s album release Kíla Alive Beo which is in the top ten of Hot Press’ end of year ‘Album of the Year’ charts.
Their remarkable partnership with French composer Bruno Coulais also continued with the recording of the soundtrack of the forthcoming animated feature White Fang.
Kíla are no strangers to the heady heights of the music world having produced 10 critically acclaimed studio albums since their first one – the quirky named Handel’s Fantasy set ears twitching some twenty years ago. In 2008 they recorded the song ‘ The Ballad of Ronnie Drew’ with U2, The Dubliners, Glen Hansard and a host of other artists. The song spent two weeks on top of the Irish Charts and was later included on a U2.com-only album of collaborations that U2 recorded with other artists – Duals (2012).
The concert starts at 8.30 p.m.
The members of Kila
