The Crotty Galvin Traditional Music Weekend, is one of the most authentic and friendliest festivals you are likely to find. It is held at Garrihys Bar in Moyasta, near the stunning Loop Head peninsula and named after three celebrated local musicians, Ellen ‘Nell’ Galvin, PJ Crotty and his brother Peadar Crotty.
Musicians, dancers, singers and storytellers are invited every year to perform for the weekend. This year marks its 17th year with it going from strength to strength each year. The weekend features a great line-up of sessions, ceilis, dancing and music classes.
The Crotty Galvin Traditional Music Weekend kicks off on Friday night at 8pm with a Seisiún. On Saturday afternoon, there will be free music and dance workshops. These will be between 12 and 4pm and are always well attended. The Workshops/Classes will cover Tin Whistle, Concert Flute, Fiddle, Brush Dance and Séan Nós Dancing. Also on Saturday there will be a visit to the green (weather permitting) with a short prayer and a few tunes and an afternoon Seisiún in Garrihy’s which will include a host of very talented young musicians. Then at 5pm the evening Seisiún will begin and will continue well into the night.
