Festival Description

The Tullamore Irish Festival features an impressive line up of Irish Entertainers including award winning bands, solo performers and dancers. In early 1992 Jimmy Moore, a highly respected Irish musician formed the successful Sydney-based group Claddagh. The group has remained Sydney’s most exciting and versatile traditional folk band for many years and has prided itself in its variety of singing styles and vast repertoire of songs. Claddagh’s current line-up includes original member and band leader Jimmy, Leon Delander and Jimmy Closs. Each member plays a range of instruments, and their powerful harmonies and sensitive musicianship produces an irresistible satisfying and unquestionably Irish sound. International artist Maria Forde makes her return to the Festival stage. As an Irish- Australian, Maria Forde has always included both sides of her heritage in her song writing. Maria incorporate her Irish origins, observations of Australia and her personal experiences to create the beautiful lyrics of songs like “Waltzing Matilda, My Darling” - a song about the spirit of the immigrants torn between their country of birth and their adopted land, Australia. “Already blessed with an angelic voice, Maria has grown into a masterful interpreter of her own material, able to totally connect the feeling of the music and words to the emotion of the song.” Throughout her career, Maria has toured constantly, performed at numerous festivals and built a solid and dedicated fan base, both in Australia, and internationally.
