Tullamore TradFest is back live and in-person for 2022 taking place over the weekend of April 8th to 10th. An action packed weekend of entertainment is in store including concerts, instrument workshops, recitals, festival club, family entertainment and of course our monster session trail.
Tullamore TradFest 2022 will also feature a special concert celebrating the life and music of our dear friend Ashling Murphy.
We are delighted that our plans for the 2020 festival will come to realisation, with Tullamore once again hosting some of traditional Irish music’s leading musicians and groups. On Friday April 8th The Bridge House Hotel will host our gala concert featuring headline act Téada with Seamus Begley, Samantha Harvey. Support on the night is provided by Orlaith & Brogan McAuliffe & Ryan Molloy and singer/storyteller Frances Kennedy. It will also mark and celebrate the outstanding contribution that Offaly’s own Ellen Comerford-Flanagan has made to the traditional music scene. Saturday morning sees Coláiste Choilm as the venue for our instrument workshops and also as the venue for our Accordion Recital. Our Saturday night Festival Club features Damien Mullane, Karen Hickey and Sean O’Meara playing upstairs in Fergie’s Bar in Market Square. Local group, Splendid Isolation, comprising of Seán Bourke, Michael Buckley & Ciarán Cooney provide support. The festival will officially conclude on the Sunday with a fiddle recital in Killeigh CCÉ’s new Teach Ceoil on Offaly Street followed by the aforementioned concert celebrating the life and music of Ashling Murphy in The Tullamore Court Hotel. Our extensive weekend long Session Trail also returns this year supported by some of Tullamore’s finest establishments. The final list of venues, while yet to be confirmed, are all set to host the best traditional music sessions over the TradFest weekend. With more events, venues and acts to be announced, this will be a weekend not to be missed.
