Féile Nasc, the one-day festival of traditional and folk music held in Dublin’s Marlay Park, has confirmed the line-up for its event on May 21. The bill for the festival is nominally topped by Paul Brady. But such is the quality of this year’s line-up that any of All-Ireland champions and multiple award-winners appearing could headline.
These include Daorí Farrell, Cáitlín (Ni Gabháinn) and Ciarán Ó Maonaigh), The Bonny Men, Cathal Croke and Eoghan Ó Ceannabháin and Ultan O’Brien. From Scotland comes the award-winning young virtuoso of the small pipes, Brìghde Chambeul, accompanied by Jamie Murchadh.
Also on the bill are The LoCal (comprising Ciarán Tourish on fiddle and James Delaney on keyboards, The Dublin Lasses, Rónán Ó Snodaigh from Kíla, singer-songwriter Steo Wall, Núadan from the Déise, local fiddler, Aidan Connolly, and the Hennesy sisters, otherwise known as Sisterix.
