TRADITUDE is a brand new Trad Festival which will be held in Ferbane, Co. Offaly on the weekend of Saturday 29 – Sunday 30 June 2019.

We have a fantastic programme of acts lined up for the weekend featuring international, national and home grown acts of the finest calibre. Please have a look at the attached Press Release for a full listing of our events.

Trad enthusiasts might be particularly interested that we have fiddle virtuoso Benedict Morris and his band playing on Sunday night in our Traditorium.

We will also be hosting an arts exhibition of superb artists, designers and craft people plus many other festival attractions with music sessions aplenty around the town.

As the name suggests ‘Traditude’ is a community based Music & Arts Festival with the aim of bringing the best of Trad and Folk music and art exhibitors to West Offaly.

To this end we are also hosting a MUSIC WORKSHOP on Saturday 29th June from 12-2pm with excellent tutors in place for fiddle, button accordion, banjo and concertina.

Workshop classes cost €15 per student and will be limited in number to 10 per class.

Mummers 2019

Congratulations to our Junior team who took part in the annual Mummers festival which takes place in the Co.Galway village of New Inn.

The gang put on a highly entertaining, lively show with some side splitting antics to boot (Michael Healy Rae would have been proud!), the great Aoife Murphy (aka the bould Michael) claimed the best Fear an Tí and Best overall Entertainer awards.

Here are just a few of the many pictures captured during the event.
