Kern is a contemporary folk band from Louth which blends the driving uilleann pipes and poignant whistles of Brendan McCreanor with the dynamic fiddle playing of Barry Kieran and the dark, authoritative voice and guitar of SJ McArdle. The band’s debut album False Deceiver, produced by Trevor Hutchinson (Lúnasa, The Waterboys), was praised by fRoots Magazine for its – “Solid grasp of traditional and contemporary forms: rich sonorous blending of uilleann pipes and fiddle lift the instrumentals, while SJ McArdle’s gritty voice and dexterous songs add an interesting extra lustre.” |
