MAY 20-23, 2021

Musical Journeys in Time and Space

Following the cancellation of our 2020 festival due to COVID 19, we are planning our 2021 festival in the face of terrible uncertainty. It forces all arts events to be very creative, and we are looking at various ways to keep a live element to the festival and to open the festival to our world-wide audience who may not be able to travel through on-line events.

Currently we hope to present as much of our 2020 programme as possible, featuring 12th-century chant for Irish saints in Europe,  cross-cultural music in Ireland from the 16th to the 18th centuries, musical interactions and the Crusades, and a musical journey from heaven to hell.

More anon!
