Celebrating their 30th year in 2018, one of Ireland’s biggest acts, Kíla, play their only Autumn UK event at Liverpool Irish Festival.
“One of the most beautifully euphoric live experiences” BBC World Review
“Softly spoken off stage and complete lunatics on it, Kíla have torn up the rulebook with their wantonly eclectic mix of styles, Brilliant!” Hot Press
Kíla have played in over 30 countries on 5 continents, even playing at Possibilities, the event that welcomed the Dalai Lama to Ireland.
Kíla‘s eight members come from the differing musical backgrounds of trad, classical and rock, resulting in a fresh blend of freewheeling instrumentals, furious jigs and primal rhythms transcending traditional boundaries of Irish music. Bristling with passion and energy, their nineteenth album Alive Beo is an exciting trip into the universe of a Kíla gig, with Rónán, Rossa & Colm Ó Snodaigh, Dee Armstrong, Brian Hogan, Dave Hingerty, James Mahon & Seanan Brennan.
Having collaborated with renowned artists including U2, The Dubliners, Shane MacGowan, Sinead O’Connor, Glen Hansard, The Corrs, Christy Moore, Damien Dempsey and a host of other artists, Kíla have worked extensively in TV and film, most notably on the soundtracks for animations The Secret of Kells (screened at #LIF2015) and Song of the Sea.
