Masters of Tradition Festival

English: Bantry House, West Cork, Ireland. Thi... (Photo credit: Wikipedia)West Cork Music is delighted to be able to announce that the 10th Masters of Tradition Festival will be taking place from Wednesday, August 15th – Sunday August 19th in Bantry House, Bantry, Co. Cork.

Joining Artistic Director, Martin Hayes in Bantry this year will be Liam O’Flynn, The Teetotallers, Tulla Céilí Band, Moya Brennan and Cormac De Barra, Väsen, Kevin Crawford, Dennis Cahill, Steve Cooney, Triona Marshall, Séamus Connolly, June McCormack, Michael Rooney, Malachy Bourke, Toner Quinn and many more.

Looking set to build on the resounding success of the last nine years, the 2012 Masters of Tradition Festival will throw open its doors to some of the very best musicians in the land. This unique Festival gives performers the freedom to choose what they play in the glorious surroundings of Bantry House and St Brendan’s Church. The idea for the festival evolved from Artistic Director, Martin Hayes’
call to create a “quiet and intimate space” where the heart of traditional music could be exposed. The concept has evolved over the years to produce this event that encompasses a simpler, less cluttered performance format and involving some of the very best
Irish musicians sharing their take on traditional music.



As ever the Festival is headlined by Martin Hayes, the fiddler from East Clare, whose distinctive touch and extravagant virtuosity has
brought the tradition to new levels. His famous trance–evoking sets with Dennis Cahill have mesmerised audiences all over the world. So
the five days of music–making in Bantry will be opened and closed by the resident master.

Martin Hayes says, “I have attended almost all of the performances each year of this festival and every time I leave Bantry, I do so
with a renewed faith in the strength of this music. Within this subtle setting our music reveals sophistication and artfulness and
its inherent virtuosity of thought.”

The Masters of Tradition Festival is generously supported by the Arts Council of Ireland, Fáilte Ireland and Cork County Council.
