Music

Line-up

The Kilians Irish Pub Team, in collaboration with the Cultural Department of the City Munich and the Munich Irish Network, is bringing the experience outdoors – in the form of a summer festival with Irish music and dance as well as culinary specialties. The organisers have selected great bands and highlights that promise a weekend full of “music and fun”. All in compliance with Covid19 regulations of course, so that guests can enjoy a safe and relaxed time at the Munich Irish Nights.

Na Ciotogi & Friends

Friday, August 27th – 4pm

About the band

The audience can’t keep their feet still while listening to the rhythm of the slides, polkas, jigs, reels and songs by Na Ciotogi (new album: “Rose Corner Sessions”). A certain Irish pride fuels the passion that makes this music so popular, and also the enthusiasm behind the group “Na Ciotogi & Friends” from the green isle: David McMahon has been living in the district of Landshut for several years. He plays the accordion, concertina, harmonica and will lead through their performance with anecdotes of the Irish and Bavarian way of life and culture. His son Sean McMahon plays the violin. Dan O’Callaghan, “Master Piper” from West Cork, plays the Uillean Pipes (Irish bagpipes) and tin whistles, while Ted O’Reilly plays the Banjo and Bouzouki and sings like Joe Cocker. Paul Solecki, born in Hawaii with roots in West Cork, can pretty much play any string instrument and has a gentle voice that can be compared to John Denver. It is the combination of these bandmembers’ different experiences and backgrounds that give “Na Ciotogi & Friends” their unique sound.

Malon Way

Friday, August 27th – 7pm

About the band

Malon Way was born as a trio in 2015 in Munich, Germany. Within a couple of short years gigging locally, the band grew into a five-piece. Shortly after this point in time, we gave into a new-found curiosity in both our harmonic sound and song writing. We then began to wonder what the world would think of it.

Declan Rynne

Saturday, August 28th – 12pm

About the band

Declan “The Voice“ Rynne performs Irish folk as well as classic rock songs. Whether you know the words or not, you will feel like singing along! Just like at Declan’s solo gigs in the local pubs of his chosen hometown Salzburg. He is originally from Athenry, in the south east of the Irish County Galway.

Sweeney Brothers

Saturday, August 28th – 3pm, 5pm, 7pm
Sunday, August 29th – 3pm, 5pm, 7pm

About the band

Since they could walk, Cillian and Cormac have been dancing in the Sweeney McAvinchey Irish Dance School and have won more than 12 European titles and various All Ireland Solo medals. The twins regularly perform their award-winning dances in Germany and Ireland and like to share the stage with The Paul Daly Band. So it’s no surprise that their performance at Odeonsplatz for the Munich St. Patrick’s Day Parade every year is one of their favourites.

Greensleeves

Saturday, August 28th – 3.30pm

About the band

Greensleeves have been known in Bavaria for playing typical music from Ireland and the neighbouring isles for over 40 years. Artists Frank McLynn (Violin) and Alison Moffat (Accordion, Vocals) have stayed true to their musical roots and present the diversity of the culture. The warmth and passion they convey has become their trademark. Their sometimes engaging, sometimes comforting-melancholy music has no frills or pomposity, but is handmade and stormy: like a visit with friends in Ireland. Songs and tunes that stem from tradition and are still captivating today. As a guest musician: Alan Burke.

Lynda Cullen

Saturday, August 28th – 5.30pm

About the band

Linda Cullen is a folk singer and songwriter from Ireland who now lives in the Black Forest. With her two albums “Paper Boat” and “Smoke without a Fire – Live in North Carolina” she has built up a loyal fanbase in Ireland and has toured a lot through the whole of Europe and the USA. She also spent five years in South Korea with the ethnic fusion band “2nd Moon”.

The Paul Daly Band mit Gast Dieter Reiter

Saturday, August 28th – 7.30pm

About the band

The Paul Daly Band has been known beyond the borders of Munich for their dynamic folk and engaging songs for a long time now. Paul Daly from Ireland, Phil Newton from England, Paul Solecki from the USA and Bettina Kuhn from Germany, play well-known and well-loved music from the 60s until today. The audience sings along enthusiastically even to their original songs when the band performs in pubs and on small stages, and also in large concert halls and festivals. Munich’s Mayor Dieter Reiter has been a regular guest musician at concerts in Munich and seems to have found his audience. Their music can be described as folk with a very Irish touch.

Alan Burke

Sunday, August 29th – 12pm

About the band

Alan Burke is known as one of the best ballad singers of his generation. This full-blooded musician’s life has seen many milestones: two highly praised solo albums “On The Other Hand“(1998) und “Tip Of The Tongue“(2000) as well as numerous recordings and collaboration with bands such as Afterhours, At First Light, Airla, Tulsk and Rambling Boys of Pleasure, and projects like the highly praised concert series “Irish Sea Sessions”.

In addition to that, Alan Burke has worked as a record producer, a music and history researcher and as an actor, for example in the show “This is What We Sang”, which won production of the year at the First Irish Theatre Festival in New York in 2010. He has also presented TV-shows in Irish for the BBC, RTÈ and TG4. His impressive stage presence, his powerful, emotional and crystal-clear voice and unique guitar-playing style, always make Alan Burke’s performances captivating and unforgettable.

Johnny & the Yooahoos

Sunday, August 29th – 3.30pm

About the band

Indie Folk, Americano Pop, Retro Bluegrass, or simply “doing their own thing”…it doesn’t matter which sound this Band plays, it is a joy to listen to. 3-way harmonies, banjo, mandolin, guitar, double bass, no electronics – this mixture of sounds places the 4 artists somewhere between big city haze and country idyll, lots of notes and inevitable rawness, yesterday’s nostalgia and looking into the future, or simply in the now. And the best way Johnny and the Yooahoos show this, is live.

Mark’n’Simon

Sunday, August 29th – 6pm

About the band

As a MusiComedy Duo, Mark from Wales and Simon from Ireland spark comedy fireworks which will delight their audience while reducing them into tears of laughter. With just the right amount of wittiness mixed in with all the slapstick and nonsense: great parodies and ingenious wordplay combined with a large portion of self-irony, and well-placed quieter phases and contemplative songs to allow the audience time to catch their breath. No question: Mark’n’Simon’s hugely entertaining high-speed-rock-pop performance keeps up with the pulse of time and makes them welcome guests at any venue looking for quality entertainment.

The Monks

Sunday, August 29th – 12pm

About the band

The Monks are five guys from all over the world which is reflected in their large musical spectrum from various generations. The audience can expect and look forward to cover songs from many different genres: folk and rock and even some modern pop.
