Return of the Cup of Tae Festival

Festival time is here again! Our 2022 Cup of Tae traditional music festival kicks off next Friday 29th April.

This year’s programme is available on the Cup of Tae Festival page.

The festival honours legendary Ardara fiddle player, the late John ‘The Tae’ Gallagher, with live traditional music, masterclasses and performances right across the lively pubs, bars and cultural locations in the town.

This year we’re delighted to honour the world renowned accordion player Dermot Byrne who will conduct the Masterclass in Accordion. Masterclasses will also be hosted by Brid Harper and Michael O’Rourke. For the full rundown of events see the Festival Programme.
