Masters of Tradition
Bantry, Co. Cork
24 August - 28 August 2022
Celebrate the last days of summer with a visit to Masters of Tradition which runs from 24 – 28 August in Bantry, Co. Cork.

It’s the Festival’s 20th anniversary and as usual, endeavours to journey to the heart of Irish music and provide a platform where subtle elements of the music can be heard.

As ever, the Festival is headlined by its Artistic Director Martin Hayes, the fiddler from East Clare, whose extravagant virtuosity has brought the tradition to new levels. Joining Martin for the opening concert are Cork pianist Cormac McCarthy, accordion player Brian Donnellan, dancer Stephanie Keane and sean-nós singer Saileog Ní Cheannabháin.

Other artists include the renowned Kathryn Tickell Trio, fiddler Sorcha Costello, pianist Catherine McHugh, Lorcán MacMathúna and more.
