While the majority of American children grow up listening to pop, Kennedy first fell in love with the traditional music of her native country. She began taking pennywhistle lessons when she was 7 growing up in Dundalk, in County Louth on Ireland’s east coast, and learned to play every traditional tune she could. “I loved practicing,” she said.
At the same time, she began taking classical piano lessons, and at 15 began studying at the Royal Academy of Music in Dublin.
