Traditional Irish Music
A quick reminer to all members that one of the last Trad Festivals for the year is taking place in Tuam, Galway on September 16-18 this year.
Following the phenomenal success of Tuam Trad Festival 2010 the organisers have been given the inspiration and encouragement to make this festival an annual event.
The Festival aims to host the best of traditional entertainment, to encourage musicians to revisit Tuam and to bring together the very best of Irish musicians, singers and dancers for a weekend feast of Traditional music, song and dance.
The Festival will start with the official opening on Friday 16th at 7pm with the legendary Seán Keane followed by sessions in various venues throughout the town.
The workshops will be very relaxed and friendly, and are open to people with prior competence in student's chosen instruments and will take place on the morning of 17th September from 11am - 1pm. Dance Workshops in both Set Dancing and Sean Os Dancing will take place on Saturday afternoon. Saturday is also a fun filled day with Farmers Market, Art Exhibition, Kid's Entertainment, Concert and Open Sessions for all visitor's while outdoor Busking Competitions will take place on Saturday from 12pm - 4pm. A Ceili will be held on Saturday Night.
Following Mass in Irish on Sunday, Sessions will resume all over town with some of the countries finest musicians; they will also be hosting a concert with a surprise guest on Sunday 18th at 3p.m. and having a Kid's Trad Disco which was a great success last year. The Committee encourage everyone to notify family and friends all over the world of our dates and perhaps get them to visit Tuam for what has been hailed one of the best festivals in the country for 2010.
