Did you miss Dublin’s fantastic Trad Festival? Yearning for the sounds of the West after your recent return back to Ireland’s seemingly more multicultural coast? Have no fear! The Harcourt Hotel has rekindled its Trad sessions on Monday evenings. Famous for its traditional Irish music from all across the 32 Counties—the Harcourt Hotel first introduced Trad sessions in the late 80’s when leading musicians, singers & dancers performed for many years at what was acclaimed “The Altar of Trad” by leading journalists and culture commentators. Be one of the first to step back onto hallowed musical grounds and support this important revival as a centre of excellence of Trad music in Dublin.
On February 13th the Harcourt Hotel has a fantastic selection of performers lined up for you: Paddy Keenan is generally acknowledged as the most accomplished Uileann Piper performing today. He will be performing alongside Eamonn de Barra (a multi instrumentalist and musician of the year in 2000 in Harcourt Young Musician of the Year competition) and James Riley. It promises to be a long evening of great music and many shared tunes.
Tickets are €10 from Hotel reception in advance: call 01 4783677 (no booking fees) to book.
