Traditional Irish Music
We are back into festival season once again and one of our newer festivals TradAsh has just published their list of tutors for this year's festival which runs from 24th-27th April. TradAsh for anyone that does not know is based in Ashbourne Co. Meath. It started in 2009 with a single vision to harness the Irish musical traditions and create an annual weekend of ‘ceol agus craic.’ Not a unique idea but for Dublin trad fans it offers something close to the capital and earlier in the year.
They have just released their programme of open sessions for this years festival and the world class list of musicians includes: John Blake, Caitlin Nic Gabhann, Joanne O'Connor, Antoin Mac Gabhann, Bernadette Nic Gabhann, Seamus Flynn, Anthony Hennigan, Tom O’ Shaughnessy, Seán Smith, Naomh Padraig Ceili Band, Rachel Duffy, Darren Lynch and even D-Dance Entertainment with Damien Doherty, Ciaralee Jenkinson and Friends. As a result of participating in “The Gathering” in 2013, TradAsh is now attracting musicians from both Northern Ireland and Scotland as well. So if you are looking to participate in this non-commercial weekend of open music sessions where ‘ceol agus craic’ and friendly atmosphere flourishes, then Ashbourne Co. Meath is the place to be this April 24th-27th.
