Tonos in St Mary’s Cathedral

events banner future

Kilkenny is home to some of the best festivals in the world, from mega music events and epic live performances to extraordinary stand up shows, with a schedule that’s ever growing and always changing but for now we must STOP and stay safe.

The safety of visitors to Kilkenny is of the utmost importance to us. Kilkenny Tourism are following the advice from government officials for the reopening of Tourism sectors in the county. Below you can see some of the many festivals that will return to Kilkenny bigger and better than ever before in a new world of social distancing.

For now you can dream from home of better days to come!

Tonos with Music in Kilkenny present, WinterSong. 

Mid-Winter is a time that resonates deeply with people across many traditions and cultures – the significance of the winter solstice period transcends faiths. It has been celebrated in music across the globe. In this concert the repertoire of Christmas and  winter-themed material dates from the 16th–18th centuries from Ireland, France, Spain, England, Poland, and further afield. Some pieces, like the Wexford Carol and the Coventry Carol are well known and some are less familiar,  e.g. the Spanish Yo me soy la moreñica and Rey, a quien reyes adoran.

The ensemble Tonos (see www.tonos.ie) is known for its interpretations of Renaissance and Baroque music and comprise soprano Róisín O’Grady and early guitarist/lutenist Dr Eamon Sweeney. Róisín is a former member of The National Chamber Choir, is a teacher and a regular guest soloist with bodies such as the National Symphony Orchestra and the Irish Baroque Orchestra. Eamon  is a guitarist and teacher, recipient of many awards, and a highly experienced workshop facilitator for groups such as the ARK Children’s Cultural Centre, Dublin City Council, Music Generation.  Supported by the Arts Council’s Touring Award
