Photos: Darlingside at Kilkenny Roots Festival (Live and In-store)

Darlingside were one of the highlights of the 2018 Kilkenny Roots Festival.

The Massachusetts-based quartet took to Set Theatre on Saturday and Kyteler’s on Sunday, managing an in-store in Rollercoaster between.

Their new album is a joy to behold and their live performances do it every justice. If you get to check them out yourself, Singularity and Hold Your Head Up High are two standouts.

Ian McDonnell was there to capture the band in action.
