WELCOME TO SKERRIES TRAD MUSIC FESTIVAL

Skerries Traditional Music Weekend commenced in 2001 and developed over the years into an action-packed Weekend with Concerts, Recitals, Workshops, Sessions and Street Music.

Quality Tutors are invited to tutor at the workshops and the range of instruments include Fiddle, Tin Whistle, Flute, Uilleann Pipes, Concertina, Accordion, Banjo, Harp and Set & Sean Nós Dancing.

Top class performers take to the stage in the Little Theatre for the opening concert of the Weekend. In previous years, Frankie Gavin & De Danann, Téada, Four Men & A Dog, Danu and Beoga, to name but a few, have performed in Skerries.

Our festival continues to go from strength to strength and this year promises to attract many more revellers from Ireland and abroad, so make sure you join us in May for a chilled weekend of great music, great craic and a great vibe.

The voluntary committee of Skerries Traditional Music Weekend is very grateful for the kind sponsorship and support of Fingal County Council, the Arts Council, and the local businesses of Skerries.
