New Orleans based duo Mickey Nelligan and Sasha Hsuczyk join forces with Atlanta favorites John Maschinot and Evan Kinney for foot-stomping, roof raising Irish music goodness!
The Kinnegans comfy stage presentation belies their mastery of the music.
The powerful combination of fiddle, pipes, flute, melodian, guitar and vocals offers the classic traditional Irish sound best experienced live to appreciate!
The Kinnegans are...

Evan Kinney plays guitar and fiddle and sings. Evan’s a multi-instrumentalist as well as a multi-genre musician, crossing over from Irish to “old-time” music with ease. Evan’s performed with The Griddle Lickers and Ah Surely, and extensively with his brother Mickey Nelligan.
Mickey Nelligan plays melodeon (button accordion), banjo and fiddle. Mickey hails from a musical family (including his brother Evan Kinney) and performs with his new Orleans based band The Sisters Street Aces.
