Learn More About Kinnfolk

The Gothard Sisters Celtic Festival Online

Celtic traditional music is alive and well in the Blue Ridge Mountains! Kinnfolk is a string-pluckin', drum-thumpin', song-warblin' duo dedicated to passing on old tunes to a new generation.


Julie Borden and Josh Kinn met at the traditional Irish session in Roanoke, Virginia. The two soon began collaborating outside the session, weaving vocal harmonies with bouzouki and bodhran. 


In August 2018, they made their first appearance at the Salem, Virginia Green Hill Highland Games. Since then, they've appeared at several cultural festivals in Roanoke (including the Green Hill Highland Games, Local Colors, the Kirkin o' the Tartan, and Burns Night). 

Kinnfolk released their debut album in March 2020.  It is available digital download on Amazon and Spotify

If you prefer a CD, you can message them on Facebook. CDs are $10 each + $5 shipping via PayPal
