Traditional Irish Music
Spirit of Folk is a two day camping festival set against the backdrop of the beautiful Dunderry Park, Co. Meath from 18th-20th of September. It's a family friendly weekend which celebrates all things folk! 2015 is its fifth year running and the Oaktree Charitable Trust is very proud to host this event, for which it is a fundraiser for!
The festival is not just about folk music but is a holistic event, which celebrates all aspects of our rich ancestral traditions, including folk music, storytelling, folk living and folk games. Our Living History area will actually bring to life many of the traditional crafts of old, with costumed craftsmen running workshops on long forgotten skills.
If that's not enough, we will also be showcasing small scale re-enactments of some of the famous battles from celtic history! Our music area will feature some of the top folk acts from the UK and Ireland. Our diverse line up of acts will cover everything from chilled out folk singer songwriters, to upbeat, expansive folk rock, along with traditional Irish Ceili Music, bringing you on a journey through all the best sounds folk has to offer.
Festival Goers can participate in traditional Irish Shamanic and Druidic ceremonies in the Soul Seminars tent, where the ancient spiritual practices of Ireland will be explored through immersive ritual and ceremony. This area will also host pop up dance & yoga sessions as well as some inspirational talks and speakers!
If that’s not enough you will have a chance to partake in some immersive experiences of old such as archery lessons, falconry (yes real life birds of prey), astronomy and witness some of Irelands best Seanacais spin some tails in our very own replica megalithic cairn.
This unique festival is a chance to immerse yourself in Ireland's rich folk heritage and experience the magic of the Spirit of Folk.
