What’s On

Some of what to expect at Traditude 2022

Máirtín O'Connor, Cathal Hayden & Seamie O'Dowd

Saturday 2nd July

Máirtín O’Connor’s name has been synonymous with the accordion for decades both as a master of the instrument and as a composer/arranger. His skill, dexterity, innovation and versatility and soft spoken wit have won him acclaim around the world.

Cathal Sean Hayden was born  in the village of the Rock, Co Tyrone outside Pomeroy, an area immersed in traditional music. The third in a family of eight, he was born into a deep musical background. His father played the banjo and fiddle, and his mother was a pianist, while both grandfathers were fiddle players. His first instrument was a tenor banjo before progressing on to fiddle.

Seamie O Dowd is a guitarist, singer, and songwriter who also plays fiddle, harmonica, mandolin, and a number of other instruments


Sunday 3rd July

One of Scotland’s most popular folk-based groups to emerge in the last decade, chart-toppers Talisk have toured the world stacking up major awards for their explosively energetic yet artfully woven sound, including Folk Band of the Year at the BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards, a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award, and the Belhaven Bursary for Innovation.

2019 Tradituders will remember Benedict Morris, who played the festival along with Cormac Crummey. Benedict is now a member of Talisk and we are delighted to welcome him back to Ferbane for Traditude 2022.

Danny Guinan & O'Dreams

Sunday 3rd July

As a songwriter, Danny Guinan draws comparison with artists like Beck and Nick Drake, although his Irish roots are unmistakable in his music as well. In the past he has toured with the likes of Luka Bloom and Shane McGowan but has more recently developed into a songwriter whose artistic voice no longer sings exclusively to the tune of his origins. Living in the Netherlands for the last 2 decades Danny is returning  to his native Ferbane. Along with his band Danny will perform songs from his back catalogue as well as from his recently released  album “Now is the time”.

Splendid Isolation

Sunday 3rd July

Hailing from Offaly and Tipperary, this string based trio mix the old and the new with utter exuberance. Sean Bourke from Nenagh on the Tenor Banjo, Ciaran Cooney from Birr on Guitar and Vocals with Michael Buckley from Ballyboy on Fiddle and Vocals. 

This group puts a new swing on some old songs, and have put some exciting sets of tunes together. They formed a few years ago, and have since travelled over the pond to gig in Las Vegas amongst other places. Keep your eyes on this group, some new stuff in store soon!
