The concert and céilí takes place on Sunday August 6th and this year pays special tribute to Nora Mai Rochford who passed away in 2014.
Nora Mai, originally from Ballybunion and lived in the Cashen, was a gifted singer and tin-whistle player who regularly performed in Browne’s Kitchen of Ballyduff and instilled a love of Traditional Irish Music amongst the younger generation. She was well known for her sense of fun and is greatly missed by the wider musical community of which she played a vital part.
Tin-whistle virtuoso, Mary Bergin will take centre stage on the night, accompanied by accomplished guitar/bouzouki player Seán Earnest from the USA (a member of popular traditional group The Yanks).
Don Stiffe from Galway is one of the most recent singer/songwriters to emerge on the Irish Folk Scene. Stiffe hails from Galway and guarantees a most impressive performance in front of a live audience.
The multi-talented Séamus Ó Flatharta of Connemara makes a welcome return to Co. Kerry. Ó Flatharta will once again delight all with his intricate steps, haunting sean-nós songs and sensational harp playing.
Frances Kennedy is well known all over the country for her unique storytelling style and is possessed with a wicked sense of humour. Originally from Co. Cork but long time resident of Listowel, Frances is in regular demand and has toured with traditional groups to Australia, U.S.A. and England.
Accordion extraordinaire Danny O’Mahony, is a native of Ballyduff and presenter with Radio Kerry. He also joins this remarkable line-up on the night and as organizer of the event, is delighted to have acquired such outstanding artists for this year’s event.
