Irish American virtuoso Kathleen Keane to perform in Yorkville


Critically acclaimed Kathleen Keane will perform at Rivers Edge Theatre on October 21 at 6PM. This concert marks Kathleen’s debut performance at the Theater and will be accompanied by one of Ireland’s premiere guitarists from Kilkenny, Jimmy Moore.

A multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and composer, Kathleen is one of the finest exponents of the Irish community in Chicago. Her virtuosic tin whistle playing earned her appearances in several hit movies, including The Road to Perdition and Backdraft. Her whistle and fiddle skills were also featured on the Cinderella Man soundtrack.

A consummate performer, she has graced stage around the world with Gaelic Storm. During her days with Gaelic Storm she made several TV appearances, including recurring episodes of Providence and performances on The Roseanne Barr Show. As a solo artist, Kathleen collaborated on an original composition for Windham Hill’s Celtic Christmas Silver Anniversary album which featured a host of respected Celtic players. The track entitled “The longing”, which she co-wrote, sang, produced and performed, resulted in her first #1 record on Billboard’s World Music Chart, topping the chart for nearly a month.
