Iarla O Lionóird with Cormac McCarthy Set For Howth Castle Candlelit Concert
Féile Binn Eadair is a new entrant to the musical calendar for Howth, Sutton, Baldoyle and Bayside. This is set to be a new departure for folk music and will see a broad swathe of musicians showcasing Irish traditional music with a roll call of the best of what the traditional music scene has to offer.
Taking place from May 19th-21st, Féile Binn Éadair 2023 May (Formely known as Howth Tradfest) will be a weekend of Irish music past and present and will include a packed schedule of up to 27 free gigs and sessions.
Headlining the festival is Iarla O Lionóird with Cormac McCarthy in a very special candlelit concert in the 19th Century Church at the gates of Howth Castle. St. Marys church is the perfect venue for Twice Grammy nominated artist Iarla Ó Lionáird. He is probably best know as the lead singer with Irish/America Supergroup The Gloaming but his groundbreaking work to date encompasses so much more, making him one of the truly great Irish singers of our time.
Other acts of note include Slataire, Leo Rickard and representing a more edgy side of trad music, Flog The Dog.
Participating venues include The Summit Inn, McNeills, The Bloody Stream, The Harbour Bar, Findlaters, The Waterside, O’Connells, The Abbey Tavern, Howth Sea Angling Club and St. Mary’s Church.
