About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

I'm a professional, fully insured, musician with 15 years experience. I play Irish fiddle and acoustic guitar/sing. I have traveled to Ireland yearly to bring back authentic music from throughout the country and played many pubs and sessions both in the Emerald Isle and the U.S. I've also played multiple renaissance fairs and have extensive experience busking/street performing. I have a B.A. in Songwriting and Production from Berklee College of Music and am currently pursuing the masters program. I have full Scottish highland attire and multiple costumes to make the setting for your event perfect if you're looking for something outside of standard formal wear. I'm just as content to be center stage as background music, my ultimate goal is to see you happy. I love unique and challenging gigs so let me know your crazy ideas... I want to hear your biggest musical dream, and I want to make it happen. What I do: WEDDINGS: Do you have visions of elegant light strings playing as your guests are seated? A dream song you've always wanted to make your bridal walk to? I'm well familiar with performing for ceremonies, bridal walks, cocktail hours, receptions, and adding violin as accompaniment to first dance songs. Let me put together something perfect for your big day. HOUSE PARTIES: Id love to be a part of your gathering of family and friends. Ive played neighborhood get-togethers, cultural nights, St Pats parties, birthdays, you name it. Nothing is more real than being able to bring authentic Irish music to your home, just like its been played for hundreds of years. I can (and have!) be background music over dinner or as guests arrive, or put a special themed concert together for your special someone. I like to think of myself as a traveling Irish pub that will bring you whatever ambience you're looking for, be it raucous or refined. CORPORATE EVENTS: I can be ambient background music during presentations, a point of interest to impress clients, play at your grand opening, or put together a concert as thanks to your employees. Ive done all of this both virtually and in person. FUNERALS: If you have experienced the unfortunate loss of a loved one, it would be an honor to help you celebrate them as you lay them to rest. I have performed in both funeral homes and at gravesides and it is a service I offer with the utmost humility and respect. COVERS: Ive played as a house musician at both Martini bars and Vineyards for many years, playing contemporary music and covers on demand. My profile is directed at Irish Traditional music but I'm well able to perform more standard material if you'd like more modern/accessible music! ENSEMBLES: If you're looking for a group or ensemble, I have a large network of other musicians I can bring to your event. Banjos, fiddlers, flutes, melodeons, guitarists, singers, bodhran, bouzouki...even Irish dancers! LESSONS: I'm an experienced music teacher on both guitar, fiddle/violin, songwriting and music theory. Ive taught both in person and virtually using a host of platforms (Zoom, Skype, Facetime, etc). What I am: I am organized, respectful, friendly, and on time. I am art focused. Bringing you the music you need is my primary concern and I am always willing to work within your budget. You will be treated like a respected friend as I do everything I can to make your vision a reality. You will receive the service you expect of an experienced professional in their field while enjoying every part of the experience. What I'm not: I am not a classically trained violinist that learned a couple Irish tunes for diversity's sake. I'm an authentic Irish musician well versed in the nuances of traditional Irish folk music. I do not show up 5 minutes before your event starts or let your emails sit in my inbox for weeks at a time before responding, you will receive timely coordination and a well prepared musician. Be bold, be kind, and safe travels...wherever your wandering takes you! FaceBook: Instagram: YouTube: Website:

Review by Robert L.

Christmas PartyReviewed on December 16, 2023From Avondale, PA

Brandon was absolutely fantastic. He is quite a talented musician. Since our gathering was a Christmas theme, he played (at our request) Christmas music as well as a mix of traditional Irish folk songs. We received so many compliments from our guests on Brandon’s music. His communication was great from the moment of booking. He arrived early to the event and played all evening. I will definitely hire Brandon again. Highly recommend.

Brandon Kennedy - One man Irish band:

Thanks so much for having me. I had a wonderful evening playing for you and your employees. It's always lovely getting to spend some time with people in an intimate, rustic, environment like that. I hope to get back up to that vineyard soon with my family. Best wishes for the holiday season and much health, wealth and joy to you in the New Year!

Corporate FunctionReviewed on December 13, 2023From Sterling, VA

I enthusiastically recommend Brandon! He performed for our large company holiday event (500+ attendees) and was absolutely fantastic! He is very responsive, professional, and brought so much positive energy to our event! We raved about his talent the entire night. Thank you, Brandon, for seeing our vision and helping make our event so great!

Brandon Kennedy - One man Irish band:

I've played for quite a few corporate events but….wow! Jazmin and her team did an amazing job with their “Christmas Around the World” theme. Walking around there was a very impressive amount of coordination and effort that had taken place… artists representing different nations, cuisine to the same end, coordinated TVs in all the rooms broadcasting live streams… And it all seemed to go off flawlessly. Thank you so much for having me, it was truly an experience and congratulations on all your efforts to make your event so successful!

Brandon Kennedy - One man Irish band:

Had a great time playing for the American Towman convention for Bryna and her crew. I feel like I discovered an entire new world of people that are so thoroughly dedicated to their craft that I have a newfound appreciation for. Thank you so much for having for me, it was a pleasure meeting and playing for you!
