Dublin man Chris Kavanagh was born and reared on Irish music and has been singing Irish folk songs since he was three years old. He learned by ear to play piano, and played different styles of music in various bands as a teenager.
His passion for Irish music inspired him to form the successful band "Legend of Luke Kelly", a tribute to the late great singer of "The Dubliners".
Multi instrumentalist Chris began writing original material six years ago, and his first single release, entitled "Paddy's Day" (co-written by Hilary Kavanagh) is available on iTunes and has been causing quite a stir on Youtube! The song was written to reflect the current political climate in Ireland, and it's Dublin wit and lively tune are sure to get your feet tapping no matter where you are from.
His first album is now available and is a perfect blend of good old fashioned Irish folk, but with a new and original flavour, the likes of which hasn't been heard in an original Irish album for decades.
According to their Facebook biography: "Described by many as the best folk band in Ireland right now, it is no wonder that they have been sought after all over the country and abroad. Joe Finn (whistles and uilleann pipes), Gavin Doyle (Bass guitar, backing vocals) and Graham Doyle (acoustic guitar and backing vocals) along with Chris (5-string banjo)complete the lineup.
The band have traveled abroad to Australia, the UK and parts of central Europe on their tours.Chris has recently recorded an album of original, new, self-penned Irish folk recordings.
