Event Description

Ballydehob Traditional Music Festival 2019

The village of Ballydehob can look forward to a bumper weekend of Irish traditional music as the thirteenth annual Ballydehob Traditional Music Festival returns on next weekend Friday, April 12th – Sunday, April 14th. Headlining this year’s festival line-up is one of Ireland’s finest traditional groups ‘Goitse’. The popular and multi-award-winning quintet Goitse was forged in the white-hot creative crucible of Limerick’s Irish World Academy. Named Live Ireland’s “Traditional Group of the Year”, Goitse have become a leader of the new generation of traditional Irish ensembles. The group has released four critically acclaimed recordings and maintains a year round touring schedule that includes performances throughout Ireland and the UK, Germany, France and the United States. Their distinctive sound lies in the quality of their own compositions interspersed with traditional tunes from the countryside of Ireland and abroad, which make each performance unique. Laying the foundations for the music are All-Ireland Bodhrán champion Colm Phelan, and Conal O’Kane, who is fast making a name for himself as one of the finest guitarists of his generation. The gripping rhythm section sets a powerful drive for the music while the sweet, charismatic voice of Áine McGeeney draws audiences into a song the way few performers can. Goitse will joined in Ballydehob by well-known local musician Danny Collins from Rosscarbery.  Tickets for the concert are €20 for adults and €10 for Under 18 and can be purchased in advance from Camier’s Gala, online from the festival website or at the door on the evening. Following the concert, the pub session trail will again fill the village with Irish traditional music starting at 10pm featuring a host of guest musicians including Alan Finn, Maeve McSweeney, Pax O Faoláin, Andy O’Connell, John Coakley and Céilí All-Stars to name but a few.
