Many thanks for including Sligo Live in the festival listing. Our 2015 dates are 21st Oct to 16th Oct. We have announced The Waterboys and Jools Holland as our first two headliners, not exactly traditional, but rootsy nonetheless. We will be announcing a strong trad programme in the coming months and will let you know as it unfolds. Well done on the site, Its great.

Hi Tony, Hi everyone ! I organise a festival in my village in the South West of France on the third week-end in September. This year it will be  the 19th 20th and 21st of September. It takes place in Tournay (65190), not far from Lourdes, Pau, Tarbes, 1 hour from Toulouse.. near the Pyrénées mountains.

We organise a "special package" for people coming from Ireland which includes all you need apart from the flights from the friday till the monday morning. (for approx 120 €) Everyone books the same return flights (details of flights given on our site - start of May at the lastest) and we take you on our bus from the airport and back again, accommodation with the locals, and all food is shared with all participants and village people on the square in the marquee.

it's a great little festival, with a lovely lively atmosphere. We're very proud that Catherine McEvoy accepted to become our official godmother this year ;)

I also give music "classes" to learn tunes together at a beginners and more advanced level in Tournay every week and we will soon again have a weekly session going. The site is being rebuilt at the moment but we have one page on the net :

If you're passing by the Pyrénées, we're always ready for a few tunes, so please call : 0033-615165910.

Thanks a million Tony for helping me advertising this event and our music in Tournay.

I don't know why it took me so long to subscribe to such a great site. Thanks for all.  Julie

IrisFest Atltanta, Westin Perimeter North, Nov 1 -2, 2013

Irish Traditions Atlanta, a Comhaltas organization, is thrilled to launch our  very first Irish festival in Atlanta.  IrishFest Atlanta will be held at the Westin Perimeter North on November 1st and 2nd.   Our event will begin Friday evening with an opening concert featuring TRIAN, a trio of world-class traditional musicians.   Saturday will be filled with an opportunity for all ages and backgrounds to learn more about the Irish culture and advance Irish music and dance skills.

We have tapped our local talent to contribute their time and craft to make this event possible.  The full board of Irish Traditions Atlanta along with many community volunteers are working hard to bring you a family friendly event celebrating Irish music, dance, and culture.
