The Second Edition of Traidphicnic festival, celebrating Irish music, culture, and traditions, takes place in An Spidéal on Friday July 5 and Saturday 6.

The festival, which is run bi-lingually and is part of The Gathering 2013, will be officially opened by Charlie Lennon at 2pm on July 5 outside Studio Cuan.

It will be a weekend event with concerts by traditional music artists along with art and cultural workshops. You can see the program here

Workshops takes place from 10.30am to 1.30pm with registration at Studio Cuan from 10 am. The cost is €15 but family discounts apply.

Among others you can listen to the music of Kevin Crawford and Martin Hayes, the video is from Feakle Festival 2011

For non-trad enthusiasts, there will be a variety of events around the Spiddal Craft Village, Studio Cuan, and the library on the Friday and Saturday.

Remember that, if you don’t have a car and think (like me) that cycling there is not possible (17 km only, I know!) you can take Bus Eireann number 424.
