Kev & Elaine
Kev & Elaine – A Westport-based two-piece acoustic band comprising the musical talents of locals Kevin Ryder (Acoustic Guitarist) and Elaine O’ Malley (Vocalist).
The dedicated friends are both involved in other independent music projects in their spare time and as well as gigging together as an acoustic twosome in popular music venues in Westport such as Mc Gings, The Clock Tavern and various hotels. They also expand their musical gifts to play for church weddings and civil ceremonies throughout the year.
The origin of ‘Kev & Elaine’ is rooted in our common interest in music and our ambitious, individual take on some old and modern tunes spanning the years yet all undertaken with great attention to detail to satisfy our own personal requirement to perform to the highest standard.
In our setlist we veer towards a range of different eras and numbers from Nina Simone, Peter Gabriel, Annie Lennox and Eva Cassidy to Paloma Faith, Duffy and Amy Winehouse to name but a few.
Since the formation of ‘Kev & Elaine’, the time and effort we put into our music has resulted in a growing number of loyal, familiar faces at our gigs and new friends alike who love the music just as much as us.
As a musical duo we strive in our steadfast passion for the music we play and our unwavering desire to provide our audiences with enjoyment and hits that are well known yet remarkably stamped with the quirky, individual and personal stamp that is ‘Kev & Elaine’.
