Eddie Kane is an accomplished singer and musician from Allenwood in Co. Kildare. Eddie inherited his musical talents from his parents as his mother played in a traditional Irish music band with all her siblings, when she was a young age and his father is known to sing an odd song or two.
Eddie started playing music locally when he was 11 years old, taking part in music sessions in various locations in the afternoons at weekends. As the years went on, he grew in confidence and in his latter teenage years he toured Ireland with various Irish bands. Eddie also lived in Sligo for a period of time, where he performed locally in the bars and venues.
When Eddie finished his secondary education, he decided he wanted to learn a trade and was very interested in being an electrician, but also to still sing & perform and Eddie has recently completed his ESB apprenticeship.
Music, today, is still Eddie’s big love. His biggest influences are Christy Moore, Andy Irvine, Planxty, The Wolfe Tones & Dervish to name but a few, and in recent years he has been honoured to perform with some of these acts on stage. In the last few years, he has performed with many groups and singers such as the Rising Sons, Paddy Mangan, Meadbh Walsh and of course with Derek Warfield & The Young Wolfe Tones. Over the last year Eddie has been performing with Derek Warfield & The Young Wolfe Tones on their Irish and English tours and he is now delighted to now get the opportunity to tour the USA and beyond with the band and actually fulfil his childhood dream.
With his exciting stage presence, love of all things Irish, love of history and enthusiasm, Eddie will bring a new excitement and flare into the band for audiences all over the world.
