Early Music Festival, back to ancient Galway

GEMF 2013 image

Have you ever rambled around the old Medieval part of Galway and wondered how it would be like in those distant times? No cars, no phones, not so many things which we couldn’t imagine to live without in the times we live in.

But we still keep having wonderful things from the past. Like now, there was music, there was dance, and poetry, and songs, and street performances…If you add to all this the Irish imagery and magic, and beautiful costumes…you’ll find yourself inmerse in some kind of mystical haze that will cover the city of Galway  from  9 to 12 of May.

The populatity of the  Galway Early Music Festival of Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque music keeps increasing since the festival was first held in 1996, with plenty of musicians an other artists from around the world.

If you haven’t heard before about the Irish Harp, the Lirone or Bardic poetry, get lost between the medieval streets of Galway and enjoy a trip to the past…the old times will be new for you!
