As part of the overall Craiceann experience, concerts are staged on two evenings (normally Tuesday and Wednesday) in the theatre of the community centre (the Áras).
The usual arrangement for the two Craiceann evening concerts is to have one famous and well established band and another that is less well known but with huge potential.
This has given the Craiceann students exposure to both the current standard setters and also the future possibilities of Traditional Irish Music.
This year we have decided to break the established pattern because we have identified two particularly talented young bands that we feel will showcase all that is vibrant and exciting in our music. Our 2019 students will therefore have the opportunity to enjoy these wonderful young musicians at the start of their professional careers and to follow them as they grow into the superstars of the future.
Attendance at these is optional, and the cost, which is not included in the normal course fee, is usually around 20 Euros per concert.
The bands for this year are:
