Galway Early Music celebrates its 22nd birthday with an exciting international programme, exploring women as composers, musicians, patrons, and inspiration in medieval, renaissance and baroque European Music.
Festival-goers can get close to the music, instruments and performers in talks, workshops, exhibitions, instrument makers’ showcases, and family events throughout the weekend. Join them for this gem of a festival in the lively medieval city of Galway on the Wild Atlantic Way.
The Festival, which runs annually in May, is GEM’s main event for the year. With concerts, workshops, talks, demonstrations, music on the streets and family events, the Festival fills the medieval streets and venues of Galway with music and colour.
Past festivals have featured outstanding international musicians and ensembles such as Jordi Savall, Andrew Lawrence-King and the Harp Consort, Red Priest, Ensemble Unicorn, Benjamin Bagby, François Lazarevitch, Alla Francesca, and many others. GEM is also proud to invite outstanding Irish artists such as Siobhán Armstrong, Malcolm Proud, Laoise O’Brien, Malachy Robinson, Eamon Sweeney, Mark Duley and Resurgam Chamber Choir, amongst many others.
