Foxford Trad Festival
Foxford is a small town in County Mayo, on the west coast of Ireland, steeped in Irish music.
The 6th Foxford Traditional Weekend takes place from the 17 - 20 October 2019.
A weekend of Traditional Irish Music, Song & Dance for all ages with concerts, master classes, workshops, sean-nós dance competitions, music sessions and lots, lots more.
Our aim is to bring our local growing culture of Irish Music, Song and Dance to an accessible and fun environment, where all ages can learn and further their skills at our workshops or just come along and soak up the atmosphere.
The success of the weekend comes from the vast wealth of local and visiting musicians and performers and their longstanding efforts to pass on and display their skills and knowledge of Irish Music, Song, Dance and Storytelling.
The Foxford area is home to many musicians and tutors who are known not only countrywide, but worldwide, and we are lucky enough to have many of them teaching and performing over the weekend.
Legends of Irish Music have been confirmed for this years Foxford Traditional Weekend in 2019 including Seamus Begley & Jim Murray, Harpist and Composer Michael Rooney and Cein Sweeney, John McCartin & Dylan Carlos.
