Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann

Category: Festival, Performance

Sunday is the opening of the 2014 Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann (All Ireland Music Festival), during which we’re expecting around 400,000 people to descend on Sligo. Pure madness, if the pics from last year’s fleadh in Derry are anything to go by! Aminah will perform at the official opening of the Fleadh at 1pm at The Model Sligo, playing flute and singing with the Sligo Baroque Orchestra and exploring the links between classical and traditional music back in the day. Expect to hear lots of O’Carolan, Geminiani and some beautiful old Scottish folk songs. Come on down for lunch, a coffee and some gentle, very old music.
