  • ​Kennedy’s Kitchen
    • ​Kennedy's Kitchen has been making Irish music together since 1998, averaging about 80 shows per year playing everything from backyard parties and weddings to pubs, concert halls, and national festivals. From our home in South Bend Indiana, we have travelled as far as New York City and Naples Florida, recording four CDs along the way (we are working on our fifth as I write this). We are family and friends, gathering every Thursday evening for dinner, laughter, and music rooted in traditional Irish Music, jigs, reels, hornpipes, aires, recitations, stories, and songs . . . adding our own compositions along the way.​
