Ken O'Malley  ::  Los Angeles, CA




From the quiet strength of his mother, who raised seven children and organized a household of nine members, to famous and infamous Irish women who left their mark on history, this show pays tribute to many of these women through Ken’s engaging stories and songs. It's a true testament to the women of Ireland, steering paths through a male dominated society with their loyalty to family and their connection with the land, many, such as Grace O’Malley, becoming bold leaders of men.


This is an intimate solo concert performance in a comfortable show room with an excellent sound system. Call their reservation hotline  (626) 798-6236  (between 10AM and 10PM) --- Ken's shows at the Coffee Gallery have sold out in the past but we have always been able to accommodate the waiting list.

If you have never been to this beautiful all-ages "listening venue" you have missed something special! link/coffeegallery. $18 (includes discount coupon for the next show).

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!
