Skerries Tradidional Music Weekend 2013
The 2013 Skerries Traditional Music Weekend is just around the corner. This wonderful event has established itself as the signature Trad Music Festival of Ireland’s East Coast.
This picturesque seaside town plays host to a weekend full of music, song and dance reflecting the unique culture of the Fingal region. Leading artists travel to Skerries where they join with locals and visitors in a celebration of Irish heritage.
A big addition this year is our feature concert on Saturday May 18th with Frankie Gavin & De Danann.
This year the Weekend features a selection of top class individual performers as well as some notable ensembles. In addition to the more formal concerts, workshops, céili and evening pub sessions, this year will see more Music on the Street providing outdoor entertainment on Saturday afternoon and a selection of additional sessions throughout both Saturday and Sunday for both the experienced player and the less experienced one. Some of these sessions will be informal start ups, so feel free to dust down the cobwebs from that instrument and get playing again! There will also be a special ‘Junior Jigs – Teen Trad’ session for the young players taking place on the Sunday afternoon.
This year’s festival takes place from Friday 17th of May thru Sunday 19th of May 2013 and is bound to attract many revellers from both Ireland and abroad, so make sure it’s in your diary if you are seeking a chilled weekend of great music, great craic and a great vibe.
