Levis Cornerhouse welcomes Louth folk favourites Kern to perform Over The Shop Counter. 
The band have released two albums – their critically acclaimed debut ‘False Deceiver’, and their current album ‘The Left and the Leaving’ which is a blend of original songs and tunes written by the band members themselves alongside traditional material from their home county of Louth. 

The band have toured the country,  including a sell-out showcase concert at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2019 and  appearances on Fleadh TV, RTE Radio 1’s John Creedon Show and Raidio na Gaeltachta.

Reviews of ‘ False Deceiver’

“Outstanding … an intriguing release. Those interested in trad music that crosses over into singer/songwriter territory will find this album particularly attractive, but its accessibility will have easy appeal to general audiences” – Irish Echo

“A solid grasp of traditional and contemporary forms. Rich sonorous blending of uilleann pipes and fiddles lift the instrumentals while SJ McArdle’s gritty voice and dexterous songs add an interesting extra lustre” – fRoots Magazine
