Hot off the back of their Academy Award nomination for WolfWalkers, Cartoon Saloon and Kíla were commissioned by Kilkenny County Council for a special performance for St. Patrick’s Day.
Having provided the musical backdrop for a number of WolfWalkers features at this stage, this performance gives you an hour in the company of Kíla, mixing visuals and moments from Kilkenny’s Oscar-hopeful for 2021.
WolfWalkers draws heavily on the rich Irish mythology, folklore and landmarks readily available in Kilkenny.
Scenes from the film will provide the backdrop during this very special performance by musical partners Kila, who teamed up with Cartoon Saloon’s regular composer Bruno Coulais for the third time to create the soundtrack to the film.
The event is available for free made possible by the support of partners Kilkenny County Council, St. Patrick’s Festival Kilkenny, Fáilte Ireland, Cartoon Saloon, Kíla and Culture Ireland.

PS: This year’s Academy Awards are set for 25 April (or 1am on the 26th for Irish viewers) with Cartoon Saloon in the running once more for Best Animated Feature.
