The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS - Siob­han Long

With a very eclec­tic pro­gramme this year, the Folk­fest fea­tures Grammy award win­ning Nige­rian rhythm meis­ter Femi Kuti (below) and his band, along with In­dian su­per­group The Bol­ly­wood Masala Orches­tra. Tech­ni­colour folk mu­sic will dom­i­nate this year’s hap­pen­ings, with Kíla, Al­doc and Na Mooneys bring­ing a dis­tinctly Ir­ish flavour to the mélange. Ye Vagabonds, No Crows, Lisa Han­ni­gan, Lisa O’Neill and Wal­lis Bird will also squeeze in, so pun­ters who land al­ready rested up will be able to make the most of the shenanigans. Yet an­other busy sum­mer week­end of mu­sic in this tourist mecca.
