Howth, Friday 19th May - Sunday 21st May

Féile Binn Éadair (formely Howth Tradfest) is a unique Traditional Music festival in the fishing village of Howth on the outskirts of Dublin. For one weekend in May Howth will be filled with music. Six venues will serve up 27 free gigs and sessions around the village and hill of Howth in a packed schedule while some special headline acts will perform ticketed concerts at other venues. Wander from gig to gig like you’re at Electric Picnic but without any entry fee.

Headlining the festival is Iarla O Lionóird with Cormac McCarthy in a very special candlelit concert in the 19th Century Church at the gates of Howth Castle. St. Marys church is the perfect
venue for Twice Grammy nominated artist Iarla Ó Lionáird. He is probably best know as the lead singer with Irish/America Supergroup The Gloaming but his groundbreaking work to date encompasses so much more, making him one of the truly great Irish singers of our time.

Also headlining is folk singer Daoirí Farrell. On the verge of releasing his fourth solo album in early 2023, he can boast numerous honours from BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards to ALSR Celtic Music accolades. Also on the bill is ‘The Legend of Luke Kelly – Dubliner’ performed by Chris Kavannagh. The show is not a tribute but a journey through Luke’s music that has received rave reviews in Ireland and abroad. From the genre-bending, high-energy folk sound of Bog Bodies to the Electronic Trad Reggae of Manglam PI, Féile Binn Éadair has something
for everyone.
