Carlow Easter Feile from 24th - 27th April 2014

Carlow Easter Feile from 24th - 27th April 2014

Easter time is festival time with the Carlow Easter Féile

Over the past two years, Easter time has brought the Pan Celtic International Festival to Carlow. Although Pan Celtic has now moved on to Derry all is not lost as the town gets ready to host its very own Carlow Easter Féile.

The 4 day festival will run from Thursday, 24 April until Sunday, 27 April and a very exciting programme of events is planned to include the County Fleadh Cheoil, four magnificent concerts, a session trail featuring some of Ireland’s finest traditional musicians, storytelling, sean-nós and ceilí workshops, music and dancing, a busking competition, family fun and more.

Back by popular demand following their great performance at Pan Celtic will be the Garda Band to open the Carlow Easter Feale with a free outdoor concert in Plás na Saoirse car park on Thursday, 24 April at 2pm. Later that night Frances Black will top the bill at the aptly named Follow Me Up to Carlow Concert in the Seven Oaks Hotel. The concert will feature such well known names as Jimmy Crowley, Jimmy Smyth, Des Willoughby and Nicky Kealy as well as a host of top local talent.

A very special concert entitled “Remembering Brian Boru featuring national and international musicians to mark the millennium of the death of Brian Boru at the Battle of Clontarf  in 1014 will take place in St. Mary’s Church, Haymarket at 7pm on Friday, 25 April. Carlow’s own Robert Tobin will team up the Tale of the Gael group as they tune up their harps, fiddles, flute, bass, bouzouki and pipes and celebrate this great Gaelic Tale in story and music.

A magnificent traditional concert in Reddys function room will officially launch Fleadh Cheoil Cheatharlach at 8.30pm on Friday night with the fleadh running its programme of competitions, sessions and impromptu performances over the weekend. The Easter Féile Session Trail will feature the cream of traditional musicians from all over the country playing at designated times in Teach Dolmain, Reddys, Tullys, Carpenters and Racey Byrnes. Meanwhile singer/songwriter Jimmy Crowley will lead the singing sessions in The Irishman’s. There will be storytelling for young and old while Carlow Folk Tales complied by father and daughter team Jack Sheehan and Aideen McBride will be officially launched.

Throw into the mix several workshops in Sean-nós and Céilí dancing, street busking and a Céilí Mór as well as an Éire Óg 7 a side senior club league, a bilingual walking tour of Carlow and a Lucinda Sly Talk and Walk.

With many of the events free or for a small charge the inaugural Carlow Easter Féile has all the ingredients to make it a great festival.
