The Winter Music Festival in Ballincollig provides a unique opportunity for audiences to see world-class artists in an intimate setting at the White Horse in the town.
The festival was opened last night by fiddle duo Paddy and Kevin Glackin, and Caoimhin O’Raghailly and Kevin Begley. Irish singer and guitarist Paul Brady plays tonight, and Cathy Davey does her first gig in over a year on Sunday.
White Horse owner, Joe Carey says,
“January can be a dreary month and it’s great to give people something to look forward to with the first music festival of 2012”.
As well as the gigs upstairs in The White Horse, there will be music classes for kids, sean nós dancing, free traditional Irish and bluegrass sessions and children’s storytelling events in other venues across the town.
