Scoil Gheimhridh Ghaoth Dobhair
Various venues until Wednesday, January 1st
This winter school gathering is a mecca for traditional music lovers from across the globe, with visitors regularly travelling from as far afield as Japan and Australia, to the many intimate sessions and concerts in this glorious setting at the foot of Mount Errigal. Dervish boldly take the reins for the infamous New Year’s Eve concert, and there are concerts from Julie Fowlis and Zoë Conway, with Eamonn Doorley and John McIntyre, as well as Fidil and Uaine, a new band featuring Bríd Harper and Tony O’Connell. An embarrassment of musical riches. scoilgheimhridh.com
