Cole Runnels joined Kilkenny Road in the spring of 2011, and is our most enthusiastic member,
always ready to play and sing, regardless of the circumstances. Cole plays guitar and also doubles on
vocals. He loves to sing a fun pub tune. Cole is a full time college student, pursuing pre-med. When
he is not working, studying or playing music, he enjoys the unique and interesting sport of falconry!
Cole grew up in Augusta, Georgia, but recently moved back to Bartlesville to be with family.
Cole says: “I’ve played a whole range of music from heavy metal to classical guitar and I can easily say that I’ve never enjoyed playing more than when playing Irish music. Written, practiced, and performed in the settings and style they sing about, it carries a flavor in the tune that I can’t get enough of!”
