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.
