Almost time for Yeats Festival Sligo 2008
26th July until 8th August this year
Wonderful lineup including
Dordan, a wonderful all ladies group who have performed a soothing and entrancing fusion of irish and classical music for over 15 years
Seamus Heaney, perhaps Ireland’s most famous living poet
No Crows, one of our favourite local bands with their stunning fusion of Irish and traditions from around Europe.
There’s a lot, lot more to provide a wonderful week for being in Sligo,
Claire Roche is not performing a concert in this festival this year, but is providing a performance for the performers and students at their reception gathering on 25th July.
Also you can check out the new No Crows CD here
And the Boyle Festival is on too!
25th July until 2nd August
Phil Coulter and John Carty will be there along with an array of performing arts, including a puppet theatre.
No Crows also here at King House on Sunday 27th of July
Claire Roche is performing a live recording at King House on 5th of August, performing on their beautiful Steinway piano. Claire has never done a public performance of songs on piano so this is a unique night.
To attend this live recording, no charge, please contact me here
If you would like to attend these festivals, especially Boyle which is local to us, please let me Know. I can also arrange accommodation and local guided tours.
Travel time between Yeats and Boyle Festivals is about 30 to 40 minutes
