Kilkenny Gospel Choir has through many years of touring and performance recognised a need for a forum for Gospel Choirs in which to exchange ideas, music and performance. We feel that Kilkenny provides the ideal venue for such a Festival. It is for this reason that we organised the Kilkenny International Gospel Choir Festival.

After a very successful inaugural International Gospel Choir Festival in 2012, where we presented Adrian ‘Fro’ Johnston,  Dr. Eddie Jones from the University of Arkansas, and Grayson Warren Brown. The Second Kilkenny International Gospel Choir Festival “A Summer of Inspirational Gospel Music”,  highlighted three events,  Ja Ronn Thompson provided a powerful message singing Gospel “With Passion and No Fear”  for our June weekend. We shared a wonderful evening with the Mississippi Gospel Choir in July, and Dr. Eddie Jones returned this tine bringing his choir for the closing weekend of our festival in August.

The festival brings with it workshops hosted by experts in the field on song writing, performance and running a successful Gospel Choir, public performances and gospel choir tours of the region. The festival provides the ideal opportunity to perform in fantastic locations, explore the South East of Ireland and indulge in your love of Gospel Music.
