Ken is pleased to announce his next tour in the spring of 2013! He will personally be your guide for this very special trip which begins in Dublin, continues to Belfast (including the new Titanic museum) and Derry in the North then on to Sligo and Westport before returning to Dublin. But, there is so much more! Ken's personal message about the tour, along with the complete itinerary and sign up information, may be found here:








Ken and his partner, Notre Dame graduate John Tabis, have written a number of rollicking tailgating songs in support of the most famous “Irish” football team in America, the “Fightin’ Irish” of the University of Notre Dame. These traditional Irish song melodies, blending a mix of football chanting and beer toasting, give the Notre Dame fans even more to cheer about. 


This rousing collection of "Fighting Irish" tailgating songs (and two bonus tracks) outsold all other CDs in the campus bookstore and catalog in its first month of release. For more information (and how you can get a copy) talk to Ken at a show or go to 

This is a must have collectible for any Notre Dame fan and will make a terrific gift for those who live the dream that is Notre Dame football. Go Irish!
