Kennedy's Kitchen

We've been making Irish music together going on twenty one years, averaging about 80 shows per year playing everything from backyard parties and weddings to pubs, concert halls, and national festivals. From our home in South Bend, Indiana, we have travelled as far as New York and Naples, Florida, recording six CDs along the way.

We are family and friends, gathering every Thursday evening for dinner, laughter, and music rooted in traditional Irish Music, jigs, reels, hornpipes, aires, recitations, stories, and songs.....adding our own compositions along the way, a mix of all things Irish from traditional to pub songs.

It's Kitchen Music from the home, the hearth, and the heart. Currently we are: joHn's nephew Liam Ladewski, Theresa Kubiak, Chris O'Brien, Joel Cooper, Nathan Waddill, Jacob Turner, and Nancy Turner. We are a community extended through time as you'll find Nolan Ladewski, Autumn Rhodes, Jim Bradberry, Sally Joyce, and Rob Weber on one or more of our first five CDs.

joHn, Liam, Theresa, and Jacob have all competed in the All-Ireland Fleadh on their respective instruments. joHn took a silver medal on guitar in accompaniment in 2004 in the All-Ireland.

We play fiddle, flutes, whistles, mandolin, bouzouki, mandola, guitar, tenor banjo, harmonica, bodhran, and bass. And, we love to sing.
