A music festival can take many forms. A celebration of culture. A chance to learn some tunes. An opportunity to meet new friends and old ones. A place to marvel at the skill of a favourite artiste. What you experience at a festival of Irish traditional music will depend to a great degree on what you go to find. But whatever your expectation, there’s one thing that you will be sure of finding: a warm welcome.
A Fleadh Cheoil is also a music festival that additionally includes music, song, dance and language competitions.
