Festival: Spirit of Folk


Wander with the woodland nymphs of Meath this September...

There's a folkie air blowing through Ireland at the moment but, since the sadly short-lived Midlands festival said goodbye after just a couple of years in existence, I'm not aware of a bluegrass/country/folk festival to cater for the love of a straight-sung song. Besides Spirit of Folk of course, which has been organically cultivating a loyal following since the holistic haven's inception just a few years ago. And the recent announcement will do nothing to deter that progress.

Confirmed for this year's festival:

Kíla --- Tupelo --- Dan Walsh --- In Their Thousands
Dan Amor --- The Emerald Armada --- Owensie
Carriages --- Lynched --- Bunoscionn --- DANI
Leading Armies --- Coscan --- Mo Hat Mo Gheansaí
Elk --- Juhn Echo --- Liam Quinn --- Stephen James
Na Tonnta --- Wicker Bones --- Corner Boy --- Catherine Hatt
Oisin McCole --- Laura Ann Brady --- Ailbhe Reddy --- Darren Lynch
Rob Corcoran --- Tommy Hayes & Mattu Noone --- Old Hannah

Tickets are priced at €40 (day) and €70 for weekend camping. Visit spiritoffolk.com for the details.
