Event Details

Now in its 17th year, Masters of Tradition celebrates the very best of Irish and International traditional music in its’ purest form through a series of concerts, talks and performances. The performances take place mainly in Bantry House, which is one of Ireland’s most exquisite historic mansions, and in other venues such as St Brendan’s Church.

The event provides a platform where subtle and sometimes obscure elements of Irish traditional music can be heard. By seeking the heart of the music we find a universal voice that has widespread appeal reaching across many cultural and musical barriers.

The festival is headlined by its Artistic Director, Martin Hayes, the fiddler from East Clare, whose distinctive touch and extravagant virtuosity has brought the tradition to new levels. His famous trance-evoking sets with Dennis Cahill have mesmerised audiences all over the world and will do so again this summer!

During the festival impromptu sessions of extraordinary quality will continue non-stop  day and night on the streets and in the pubs around Bantry.

Tickets are available to purchase for Masters of Tradition 2019 and the line-up of events, activities and performances, which will take place every day from Wednesday 21st through to Sunday 25th August 2019, is available to view or download at programme.
