Klonakilty are a 2 piece band and spend their life gigging throughout Europe, their music is Celtic based but they tend to stray into all sorts of other musical genres.
A Brief History
On Friday 29th October 2006 klonakilty celebrated their 700th concert together as a professional band.
Over a period of 7yrs klonakilty have toured throughout Europe performing at venues of all types and sizes, from small pubs and culture/folk clubs to large concert halls in Germany, open air and tent festivals such as Freiburg ZMF (Zelt Music Fest) , Staatsfeiertag Folk Festival, Vaduz, Liechtenstein, Festival Med, Loulé; Portugal (World Music Fest) to aprés ski parties in Davos Switzerland, and private functions at weddings, birthdays, corporation events & military bases.
For six years Klonakilty were based near Freiburg in the Black Forest area of Germany, a beautiful part of Europe and central enough to enable them to give performances in the surrounding countries as well as Southern Germany. However last year saw a change of events and Klonakilty decided to spend some time in Portugal, Spain, and France, they currently move between these countries, but distance is no object as last year proved when Klonakilty returned to Germany in July for a concerts at the Sommerfest, Schaan, Liechtenstein and various Weinfests in Markgräflerland, and again in November for a 6 week winter tour. Another German winter tour is currently being planned for November/December 2008
