The highlight of the Ceol Aneas long weekend, The Annual Festival Concert showcases festival guests and tutors in the very best of true Irish tradition.
This year’s guests represent a veritable power house of international Irish music talent, the strongest lineup the festival has ever had. Expect a delightful evening of traditional Irish music with rousing, toe tapping tunes, song and a bit of 'craic' thrown in for good measure.
Headlined by the mightily talented Kevin Crawford known internationally as a vibrant part of Irish acoustic super-group "Lunasa" with Colin Farrell, Patrick Doocey and Dáire Mulhern from Ireland, this will be a world class event. Australians Ben Stephenson and Ado Barker known for their part in "Trouble in the Kitchen", Luke Plumb ex "Shooglenifty" and Nelson's Brendyn Montgomery complete this awesome lineup. This concert is a chance for our festival guests to give us all a taste of their wonderful musical skills and creativity. Together, these fabulous musicians will lift the roof in celebration of traditional Irish music.
This will be an event not to be missed.
Last years concert was very full so be in quick to avoid disappointment.
