With concerts from Dervish, Mairtín O’Connor, Moxie and a special Traditions Meet performance still ahead this week, there’s plenty to look forward to at Fleadhfest 2021 in Sligo.
We have already had two spectacular nights of music with the Knocknashee Céilí Band and Téada, which played to appreciative audiences both within the Peace Park venue as well as thousands more who watched in online.
There were viewers in the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Sweden, Australia and in many more countries, not to mention the many more who watched in closer to home.
People have been so starved of live music, this has really been a positive for people, especially for the lucky ones who managed to grab one of the golden tickets. And with 4 live shows still ahead, it’s not too late to grab a ticket if you are in the Sligo area in the coming days. Traditions Meet will see musicians from different backgrounds come together for a special cross-border musical programme tomorrow night (Thursday at 8pm). Tickets for this event cost just €3.
On Friday, alt trad favourites Moxie take to the stage, followed on Saturday by the renowned Dervish, with Mirtín O’Connor, Cathal Hayden and Séamie O’Dowd bringing the curtain down on the live music festival on Sunday next.
Limited numbers of tickets – priced at just €20 – are available for all of these gigs, but move quickly if you want to come along.
And if you are worried about being at an event during these challenging times, please be reassured that we have taken every step to ensure that you can the events are fully Covid-compliant. And if you take a look at the comments section of our Facebook page, you’ll see just what an enjoyable experience it has been for many thus far, whether there in person or watching in online.
