Mick Flannery is widely regarded as one of the finest singer-songwriters to come out of Ireland in recent years.
An award winning- double platinum selling artist, Mick has released five albums to date – including two number ones and received widespread airplay. He became the first Irish musician to ever win awards at the International Songwriting Competition in Nashville, aged 19. His critically acclaimed live performances have seen him sell out shows in Ireland’s Olympia Theatre and Cork Opera House.

"a song-writing force to be reckoned with" Irish times
Kathleen MacInnes is widely regarded as one of the twenty-first century’s finest exponents of the art of Gaelic song. She was born and raised in South Uist in the Western Isles, a hotbed of Scottish traditional music.
Her recording debut 'Òg-Mhadainn Shamhraidh' (Summer Dawn) was released in 2006. Later in the same year MacInnes was voted Gaelic Singer Of The Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards. Her debut album was followed by the 2012 release of a stunning second album 'Cille Bhrìde' (Kilbride), featuring traditional musicians, John McCusker, Michael McGoldrick, Donald Shaw, Iain MacDonald and Cathy Ann MacPhee.
Kathleen will be joined by the phenomenal Irish harpist Laois Kelly.
“Her right hand fires out tunes with a fluidity, creativity and clarity that has revolutionised the harp as a solo instrument; her left hand is the source of a new voice in the world of accompaniment and groove, rooted in her engagement with the contemporary world of guitar, bouzouki, bódhran and keyboard while being distinct in its own right. Laoise has made it OK for a harp to sit in the centre of the session and be the heart of the trad band headlining the festival.”
