The musicians play a variety of instruments including fiddle, flute, whistles, mandolin, bouzouki, guitar and bodhran.

Kennedy’s Kitchen appears frequently at local venues including Fiddler’s Hearth, Kate O’Connor’s, The Box Factory for the Arts, and Acorn Theatre. The group also plays at national Irish music festivals including Michigan Irish Fest, Erin Fest in Peoria, Ill., and Chicago’s Irish American Heritage Center’s Annual Fest.
