Traditional & contemporary music in the west
From traditional to rock, music is alive in the west of Ireland
From ancient traditional reels and jigs to some of the biggest rock bands in the world music has long been at the heart of Irish culture. There is scarcely a village or street in Ireland without a musical pub or venue and this is as true today as it has always been.
The difference today is there are also a number of large venues in the Shannon Region that play host to major international acts, so it’s not all about cosy traditional pub ‘sessions’. To see what’s on in the area over the next few weeks, just click here and here.
