Event Details

Drogheda Traditional Music and Singing Weekend continues with a mid-afternoon concert at the historic Tholsel building in the heart of the town.

Drogheda’s Kevin Branigan is well-known on the national traditional singing scene along with his brother Patrick – both as a duo and as members of the traditional harmony group, Sundays Gate Quartet. Kevin was also a founding member of the very successful traditional group, Reynadine, and featured on TG4 along with his brother Patrick during the very successful Fleadh Cheoil held in Drogheda 2018.  But on this occasion Kevin will be singing solo and featuring songs from his recently released solo album.

Carolanne and Declan Barber are relatively new to the local traditional music scene but since their arrival in the area they are firm favourites at singing sessions and in particular the, now in abeyance regular Wednesday night session that was held in Carberry’s public house in the town. Carolanne is equally at home singing traditional songs, in Irish or English, as well as a broad range of folk songs. Declan is a multi-instrumentalist as well as a fine singer of traditional Irish and folk songs.

Tockets, costing €5, are available from
