Pop-up trad gig and other Summer shows and sessions

 Culture Night 2017 at The Bullring Wexford 2 REDUCED

Wexford Comhaltas take to The Bullring on Sat 11th August (1.30-3.30pm) for a one-off pop-up gig. Craobh Loch Garman has been packing them in at sessions over the Summer both at The Sky & The Ground and the Irish National Heritage Park. The branch is blessed with an array of talent with some of the younger musicians, in particular, impressing in recent shows. The show at The Bullring will feature a good number of the latter. The organiser of the event is traditional singing maestro Paddy Berry. He says that the high-octane show will set pulses racing and that one should not hold back if the urge to dance takes hold! He is particularly looking forward to the duelling banjos, the face-off between bag pipes and uilleann pipes and a percussive call to arms from the massed ranks of bodhráns. Paddy says that the show is all part of the effort to successfully secure Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2020 for Wexford.

Wexford Town's top live music hostelry, The Sky & The Ground, plays host to the next of its Comhaltas's Summer Seisiúns on Tuesday, July 31 (9.30pm). The weekly sessions have been drawing great audiences and the feedback has been hugely positive. The focus is on showcasing the very best of local talent, be it traditional music / singing, storytelling or Irish dancing. Each week a number of special guests join the house band. Adm €5. Final session: Aug 7.
