TradFest begins next week in Temple bar

TradFest begins next week across the city bringing the public some much needed jovial times after the long quiet weeks after Christmas. They’ve got Sean nós singing and songwriting workshops, multi-instrumentalists, bagpipes, bodhráns, the whole kaboodle. Some gigs are free, some are under 5 euro others like Grammy award winners in cathedrals are as much as 35 euro. Some gigs are out on the streets some in shopping malls. There are film screenings, and also a Trad for kids feature with tutoring on various instruments and like everything else that the city runs those free gigs and workshops ‘booking is essential’.

A lot of it is happening in the vicinity of temple bar so prepare for craziness all in good spirits I hope and not a preview of Paddy’s day.
