Fancy a free-for-all at Farmleigh?
When Taoiseach Brian Cowen is looking for a bed for the night in the capital, he lodges at the Farmleigh estate in the Phoenix Park. The rest of us get a chance to enjoy Lord Iveagh’s stately pile when the Farmleigh Affair returns for its third outing over the August Bank Holiday weekend.
The free two-day event from the Improvised Music Company will feature Justin Adams (a regular collaborator with Robert Plant and Tinariwen) with Gambian ritti maestro Juldeh Camara, the Mornington Singers, Grada, Iarla Ó Lionáird, Grupo Fantasma, Lo Còr De La Plana and many more. Tickets are available from today at www.farmleighaffair.com and are limited to four per person (and that goes for the Taoiseach too).
