Aoibhe Kettle, Naoise Kettle and Senan Shortall are a trio of multi-instrumentalists from Co. Laois. With strong roots in Irish music and a grounded traditional sound, they like to experiment, fusing contemporary and world styles of music into their performances.
Aoibhe is an accomplished harpist and fiddle player with many All-Ireland accolades to her name. She is a member of the National Folk Orchestra of Ireland and a very active composer. With many of her compositions inspired by stories of ancient Irish heritage, her music encompasses a unique traditional sound that can transport the listener.
Aoibhe’s brother, Naoise, is a fiddle and guitar player. Having won the All-Ireland under-18 Fiddle title at the Fleadh in 2018, Naoise’s music career has stayed close to the tradition as he now performs and competes with “The Grange” Ceili Band, of which Senan Shortall is also a member.
Senan plays the concertina and piano and regularly collaborates and records with Aoibhe and Naoise. His contemporary feel on the piano, paired with traditional music, allows for a rich and soulful musical performance.
This concert is being presented by the OPW as part of the cultural programme at Doneraile Court
