Cork Folk Festival 30th Anniversary

If you thought the festival season was over, you should think again! The Cork Folk Festival (sponsored by Beamish) will celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2010 with a full slate of entertainment. The main attraction to the festival is music; however, there are other activities as well, including a parade up Oliver Plunkett Street on Sunday, sean nos and set dancing workshops, music classes, an open-air food market, and a free music trail at over 18 pubs around Cork City. There are even activities for the kids.

For more information or to purchase tickets, drop by their website at http://www.corkfolkfestival.com/. While you’re at the website, be sure to take a look at the beautiful print that the festival commissioned local artist and musician, Colm Murphy, to produce to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the festival. Only 200 numbered and signed prints will be made available, and the website tells you how you can get one for your very own!
