A cracking line up to kick start Ireland Folk Fest Killarney July 8th, 9th & 10th 2016.
Legendary folk singer Christy Moore headlines Saturday night at Folkfest 2016, signalling a return to his roots having recorded the famous “Ride On” album in Killarney July 1986.
We are also delighted to have Damien Dempsey headline Friday night. Other confirmed acts over the weekend include traditional flute genius, Mike McGoldrick who has just completed a World Arena Tour with Mark Knopfler; fiddle player and composer, Colm Mac Con Iomaire, formerly of the Frames; The ethereal Maria Doyle Kennedy; and Sean-Nós singer Iarla O Lionáird of the Gloaming, who has recently been the subject of great acclaim for his cameo appearance in the Irish Blockbuster ‘Brooklyn’. This first announcement is a sign of what is to follow. There are many more quality acts to be announced, for what guarantees to be a great weekend!
