The Kilkennys Release New Single & Video ‘Homeland’

Ireland’s finest balladeers release new single ‘Homeland’ Featuring Arís Celebration Choir

An all Kilkenny production, The Kilkennys release ‘Homeland’ a song written by legendary singer songwriter Mick Hanly who lives in Kilkenny and featuring Ireland’s best loved choir Arís Celebration Choir (formerly known as Kilkenny Presentation School Choir – who reached 2016 Britain’s Got Talent semi-final). The Kilkennys have distinguished their sound with an arsenal of instruments and harmonies. The single release comes ahead of The Kilkennys trip to India in September and their extensive tour in Germany and Holland throughout October and November 2017. The single is also set to feature on The Kilkennys forthcoming album due for release next year. “Everyone has a Homeland, we have played the song while on tour in Europe, and it really resonates with the crowd, as it does with us. We’ve added a 12-piece string orchestra and the Arís Choir to the track, which we could not be happier with, it really gives justice to this cherished song. Working with Veronica McCann and the Choir has been an unforgettable experience.” Davey Cashin (The Kilkennys) The music video for ‘Homeland’ was shot over 3 days in Kilkenny City and County. It showcases The Kilkennys alongside Arís Celebration Choir in their beloved home county, and draws the authentic atmosphere of Ballykeeffe Amphitheatre situated in the quaint Kilkenny countryside. .
