Clannad’s Moya Brennan confirmed for Masters of Tradition

Moya BrennanCover of Moya BrennanCLANNAD’S Moya Brennan, the Tulla Céilí Band, uilleann piper Liam O’Flynn and fiddler Martin Hayes will be just some of the traditional musicians performing at the 10th Masters of Tradition which runs from August 15th-19th in Bantry.
To mark the anniversary of the festival there will be a new series of late morning coffee concerts and master-classes to complement the programme of evening performances in Bantry House and St Brendan’s Church.
Among those featuring in these coffee concerts in St Brendan’s Church will be guitarist and singer John Doyle and Lunasa flute player Kevin Crawford who are part of the new traditional music supergroup The Teetotallers.
The Andalusian singer Carmen Ibanez-Berbel will perform songs with popular themes of Spanish and Latin American folklore alongside homegrown singers Maire Ní Chéileachair, John Flanagan and Len Graham.
There are still tickets available for all performances, including the opening and closing concerts which feature the acclaimed Clare fiddler Martin Hayes, who is also the Artistic Director of the Masters of Tradition.
He will be joined by Chicago guitarist Dennis Cahill, fiddlers Toner Quinn and Malachy Bourke and others.




Grammy winning singer and member of Clannad Moya Brennan appears on Saturday night in Bantry House with harpist Cormac DeBarra and Väsen.
This Swedish trio has gathered glowing reviews for its phenomenal musical interplay which makes every performance unique.
Throughout the week there will also be a chance to catch the Festival’s resident dancer Stephanie Keane, a special harp concert featuring Ireland’s finest harpists, the Tulla Céilí Band making their Bantry House debut in an unmissable late night concert, hugely talented guitarist Steve Cooney joining the legendary piper Liam O’Flynn and sean-nós singer John Flanagan in St Brendan’s Church, the exciting new trio of traditional legends The Teetotallers and much more.
In the Maritime Hotel each morning, there will be master-classes in which advanced students are tutored by fiddlers Séamus Connolly and Toner Quinn, Kevin Crawford and Moya Brennan.
These students have already been selected but these master-classes are open to the public who wish to attend as observers and promise to be highly informative and entertaining.
The idea for this unique festival evolved from Artistic Director Martin Hayes’ call to create a “quiet and intimate space” where the heart of traditional music could be exposed.
