Featured Review

Kennedy's CDs are a wonder! They are filled with jokes in between tracks, interaction from the audience, and above all just good clean fun. Some of the songs are themselves filled with hilarity, others are actually somber; no matter which, they are entertaining and sung from the heart with love. This is a man who would be worth travelling to see in concert, even if he was halfway round the world.Naomi De BruynGreen Man Review
There is a deep respect for heritage and culture, even when it is often delivered through irreverent humor. His stories and his songs all have an underlying thread of love and respect for Irish and American culture and for life’s lessons.Jed MarumThe Ceili
Seamus Kennedy’s music is a gleefully mixed bag of styles and traditions... An enjoyably eclectic and often surprising collection.Richard MiddletonSing Out!
In every dealing that I have had with Mr. Kennedy, he has been indeed fabulous. My highest recommendation is provided.Kimberley M. FoltzU.S. Army War College Carlisle, PA
The man with the soft, lilting Irish brogue takes the stage and greets the crowd with a happy-to-see-you smile that could light the sky... He sings with the strong voice of an Irish balladeer and tells stories and jokes that make the crowd rock with laughter.. His quick wit tailors itself to the audience and his vast store of songs keeps the crowd happy.S.J. PearsonAnchorage Times
And while I am writing, I'd just like to add That the very most rollicking fun that we had Was the all-too-few minutes we happily spent With the crowd that filled up Seamus Kennedy's tent.Carol of Dallas, TXOde to North Texas Irish Festival
His rapport with the crowd provides entertainment above and beyond that of a normal singer. Irish InsiderRochester, NY
Seamus Kennedy's Goodwill To Men [Christmas album] will knock the socks off your mantle.Mike MillerTune-up (Philadelphia Folk Song Society)
Pay The Reckoning's verdict after listening to A Smile And A Tear is that he falls into the entertainer camp, yet approaches his material with the sensitivities of an artist.Aidan CrosseyPay the Reckoning
Those blessed (cursed?) with the fickle, perpetually snot-ridden ball of energy that is a pre-school kid will instantly recognize the value of this collection of daft kid's songs [Gets on Everybody's Nerves].Aidan CrosseyPay the Reckoning
When he sang "The Town I Love So Well", he owned everybody in the room.Tony HynesFir Dóiteán
A friend once told me that if you look up the "world's funniest man" in the dictionary, they have a picture of Seamus Kennedy! Well that may be true but there's more then humor to a Seamus Kennedy show ... That underlying thread and his "honed to perfection" music and humor skills have made Seamus Kennedy a maestro among Irish troubadours.Jed MarumThe Ceili
This guy is hilarious. His antics alone could entertain an audience for the evening. That's not to say he's not a good musician. Kennedy's strong in both song and instrument with a repertoire of tunes that never seems to end.Kimberly HarschMuskegon Chronicle
I want to thank you for performing at my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary. The look on my father’s face was one for the memory books. My mother is still on cloud nine. You went above and beyond what you were contracted for. A true professional. People from the party said they look forward to seeing you perform again. Some were afraid to leave because they might have missed something. Again, thank you for everything you did for us.Laura Fisher
