TradFest, Irelands annual celebration of all things Trad, Folk and World Music is back from January 24th – 28th 2018, yet again with the most extensive line up of national and international performers. The majority of all headline concerts will be dominated by female performers, including legends such as Judy Collins, Martha Wainwright, Maighread & Triona Ni Dhomhnaill, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Shelby Lynn, Alison Moorer, Wallis Bird, Moya Brennan, Shirley Collins, Michelle & Louise Mulcahy, Laoise Kelly, Kaia Kater, The Sound of the Sirens, Ciara Sidine, Karrie & Ailbhe Reddy, Leslie Dowdall and all female group Radiant Arcadia, while Aoife Scott will lead an exclusive all female singing circle, featuring female performers from the worlds of trad and folk.

Trad without Frontiers: the 2018 festival continues to expand its musical boundaries with the arrival of the highly acclaimed Dhol Foundation, The Dhol Foundation is both a Dhol drum institute in London and a musical group playing bhangra music; Celtic Harp Maestro, Alan Stivell will bring his energetic Celtic sounds to Dublin Castle, while French Algerian Guitarist Pierre Bensusan will perform at City Hall. The festival has also commissioned ‘Radiant Arcadia’, a Muslim, Jewish, Christian ensemble curated by Copenhagen World Music Festival director Annette Bellaoui.

This year TradFest also pays a musical Tribute to the legendary musician and producer Eamonn Campbell (formerly of The Dubliners who sadly passed away in 2017).
