Welcome to Galway Early Music Festival

The concerts and events this year place women firmly to the fore in many different ways. Discover baroque gender-bending mezzo- soprano opera roles, the music of a 15th-century artistocratic female musician and patron, 12th-century female troubadors, and Green Ladies daring to play gemshorns! Exhibitions, workshops, and family events each approach the theme from unexpected angles.

Tickets are available on-line here, in OPUS II and at the door.
