St Bar­ra­hane’s Church Fes­ti­val of Mu­sic Castle­town­shend, Co Cork, bar­ra­hane­mu­

The 37th Fes­ti­val of Mu­sic, a cham­ber mu­sic se­ries that runs from mid-July to mid-August in Castle­town­shend, got un­der way last week. The long-es­tab­lished Thurs­day evening con­certs fea­tures flute, vi­ola and harp trios from Mu­sici Ireland (tonight), the Ir­ish Gui­tar Quar­tet (August 3rd), and Jessie Kennedy with guests The Ves­per­tine Quar­tet, Patsy Put­tnam and Mau­rice Seezer (August 10th). But this year’s pro­gramme adds a new strand of Satur­day af­ter­noon (4pm) con­certs with St Mary’s Church Choir from Wimbledon (July 29th), early mu­sic from En­sem­ble Dagda (August 5th), and the Stavros Youth Choir from Rus­sia (Satur­day 19th). And it’s all achieved with sup­port from Cork County Coun­cil rather than the Arts Coun­cil.
