Festival Description

The festival promotes and encourages the performance and appreciation of Early Music, principally but not exclusively in East Cork. “Early Music” is music composed before 1750 and is performed with instruments appropriate to the period. We aim to integrate the authentic style and spirit of an earlier time with performances which are vital and coherent in the present. Therefore, later music may be included and connections made to contemporary music, traditional music from various cultures, non-written-down forms of music, and other art forms such as dance, theatre, literature, visual art, film etc. In this way, we acknowledge “Early Music” as a vital root of our present culture.
