Dates confirmed for 2018 - 18th-21st October Full details to follow.
A weekend of Traditional Irish Music, Song & Dance for all ages with concerts, master classes, workshops, sean-nós dance competitions, music sessions and lots, lots more. Foxford is a small town in county Mayo, on the west coast of Ireland, steeped in Irish music.
And so Foxford welcomes you to the third annual Foxford Traditional Weekend. Our aim is to bring our local growing culture of Irish Music, Song and Dance to an accessible and fun environment, where all ages can learn and further their skills at our workshops or just come along and soak up the atmosphere. The success of the weekend comes from the vast wealth of local and visiting musicians and performers and their longstanding efforts to pass on and display their skills and knowledge of Irish Music, Song, Dance and Storytelling. The Foxford area is home to many musicians and tutors who are known not only countrywide, but worldwide, and we are lucky enough to have many of them teaching and performing over the weekend.
We would love to see your photos and video clips from the weekend!
Please give the pdf a moment to focus once you increase size. Thank you.
