Kilfenora Ceili Band

 A long established Irish Ceilidh Band from Kilfenora in Ireland. The Kilfenora has been running for nearly a century and has trained many traditional musicians. Starting 1n 1909 as an ad hoc band for a church fundraiser, it became a regular event. One of the most celebrated members was Kitty Linnane who led the group for nearly 40 years (and snook out of a convent to join them).

The band has a large and changing membership and has issued a few recordings. A characteristic of the band is the dum-ching dum-ching piano intro to the sets.
