Festival Description

The Clare Festival of Traditional Singing was founded in 1990 and since then has taken place annually. It promotes an interest in unaccompanied traditional singing with lectures, concerts, recitals and a multitude of informal sessions as well as formal performances by the finest traditional singers from throughout the country. The festival has gone from strength to strength since its inception and is rightly regarded as the premier non-competitive Irish and English language singing event in the country with a growing international reputation.

Festival Dates November 18 - 20, 2011
