A look back on Festival 2014!

The 19th Galway Early Music Festival ended on Sunday May 11.  What an amazing weekend of unique performances! We are keeping information about the festival below, and you can still click on the “concerts” and “events” buttons below to see what we were up to with our teasing theme.  And now you can view our post-festival trailer with highlights from the festival.


Have you ever heard a tibia, or a carnyx or lyr?  Wondered what Nero fiddled as Rome burned or what Larry Loinsigh’s harp sounded like?  This year’s festival presented a series of concerts, lectures and workshops that gave a fascinating glimpse into the early musical culture of Europe, following the development of European music from ancient to early medieval and renaissance in a programme guaranteed to delight and astonish.
