Kings Of Kudos

 Friday 28th June @ 8.p.m.

 The Legendary Kings of Kudos  featuring Stephen Housden join us at The High Tide Club Friday 28th June @ 8 p.m.  Stephen is regarded as one of the finest guitarists in the world.  Well know guitarist with Little River Band for more than two decades, he has also played & recorded with such music legends as Warren Zevon, Dr. John, Glenn Frey, Christopher Cross, John Enthwhistle (The Who), Noel Redding (The Jimi Hendrix Experience), Steve Cropper, Renee Geyer & many, many others.

 Stephen and his family moved to Australia at the age of eight.  He soon discovered rock 'n' roll and fell under the spell of such lead guitarists as Hank B. Marvin (The Shadows) and Chuck Berry.  He formed his first band at high school whilst all the time honing his craft.  Hendrix and Wes Montgomery became influences as Stephen worked hard on learning different techniques, whilst also striving to develop his own distinctive style.

In 1999 Stephen and his family moved to Cork.  Long inspired by Irish Music, Stephen now enjoys playing with some of Irelands top musicians including a feature on Paddy keenan's Long Grazing Acre CD.

Maria Doyle Kennedy

About Maria Doyle Kennedy

In 2001, Kennedy released music on Mermaid Records, a label she founded herself. Her debut solo album Charm was released in 2001. She coordinated Sirens which is a compilation album of female artists and which was released in 2003. She released an album Skullcover consisting of cover versions in 2005, and Mütter in 2007.

Kennedy’s new album with her husband Kieran is called The Storms Are On the Ocean. A collection of Appalachian standards dressed in darned gowns, its spiritual siblings are Plant's Band of Joy, PJ's White Chalk and Gillian Welch's stark daguerreotypes. Here are courtly tunes, murder ballads, child ballads and death fugues all backlit by Kieran Kennedy's acoustic guitar, banjo and piano.

Both of her solo albums have been nominated for Meteor awards and her forthcoming project sees her teamed with U.S. country music legend John Prine Damien Rice and Paul Brady. Sing was released September 2012 and reached no 4 in Irish charts.
