The Clancy Brothers Music & Art Festival
May 27 – June 1, 2020
Every June Bank holiday weekend music, art and tradition flows through the streets of Carrick-On-Suir as the Clancy Brothers Festival of Music and Art takes place.
The festival honours the musical legacy of the influential Irish folk music group of the 1960s, ‘The Clancy Brothers’, whose home town was Carrick-On-Suir and who are credited with popularising Irish folk song across the world.
There’s music, art and drama in the theatres, in the pubs and on the streets…so come to Carrick-on-Suir for the Clancy Brothers Festival on the June Bank Holiday where there’s music and magic in the air!
The Festival embraces the local community and showcases the exceptional local talent in performing, visual & multi-disciplinary arts. Carrick-on-Suir boasts so much talent for a small community and The Clancy Brothers Festival is the perfect way to showcase local talent as well as national and international artists.
‘The Clancy Brothers Festival is a magical little festival. There is music in the air, and storytelling and poetry. Go soak in the great tradition of melody and balladry that is the legacy of the Clancys’, John Spillane.
