Our good friends at Swell Music & Arts Festival are taking a sabbatical for 2019 but Earagail Arts Festival is delighted to announce a new music and arts trail on Arranmore on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st July, with a series of live music performances, comedy and spoken word, day and night across five venues on one of Ireland’s most stunning islands along the Wild Atlantic Way.
Commencing with Day 1 on Saturday afternoon, some of the finest Irish solo artists including Oscar Jennings, Conor Mason and Leila Jane will take to the stage at Neilys on the road west on the island, whilst during the afternoon, Phil Bans plays host to The Green Island’s legendary traditional session and Dublin folk group Martello. Day 1 culminates in a special late night Mountain Stage at Earlys with Donegal’s own Eve Belle and a welcome return to the island by Dundalk’s Accidents In The Workplace.
Day 2 of the Mór Music & Arts Trail presents a programme of international Gaelic culture. Commencing with an afternoon of Irish and Scottish Gaelic song and spoken word with Rody Gorman, Hamish McLeod, Josie Duncan and Signy Jakobsdottir, Thatchers of the Acropolis, Eoghan Mac Giolla Bhríde agus aíonna speisialta, more music from The Green Island and Martello in Phil Bans, the second day will draw to a close with the acclaimed poet Stephen James Smith, Diane Ní Chanainn (Diane Cannon) & Manus Lunny, Clann Mhic Ruairí and headlined by Ríoghnach Connolly and Ellis Davies’ seven-piece funk outfit, Honeyfeet at Earlys.
