Dungarvan Summer Music Festival is three days of exciting and groundbreaking music across the three days of the August Bank Holiday weekend, in three different venues around the picturesque harbour town.
World-renowned uilleann piper David Power is both the driving force behind the festival and its curator, and he has put together a wonderful line-up of Irish music that is eminently forward-looking but grown from traditional roots.
On Friday night legendary trad group Lúnasa will bring their instrumental brilliance and cutting edge arrangements of Irish trad to the SGC Theatre.
During the day on Saturday there will be free performances ~Greenway Sessions~ by leading international musicians along the Waterford Greenway.Saturday`s concert at the Townhall Theatre features Antarctica, an electro-acoustic collaboration by Cork composer Linda Buckley and Power, while Sunday’s concert at St Mary’s Church of Ireland features the world premiere of Buile Suibhne- The Madness of King Sweeney by New York composer Dana Lynn for RTÉ’s Contempo String Quartet and Power with words by actor Barry Mc Govern.
