Line Up Announced: Spirit of Folk Festival 2015
It’s back!! Our favourite summer festival, Spirit of Folk, has just announced their lineup for 2015 and it’s brilliant. SOFF turns five this year and takes place from September 18th to 20th at Dunderry Park in Co. Meath. It’s honestly such a tremendous way to spend a weekend and a good few of our crew will be there. To the lineup so!
Cork’s Mick Flannery will headline along with contemporary rock-trad powerhouse, ‘Moxie’, a soulful and much hyped ‘Inni-K’ and the roof raising ‘Bunoscionn’, returning from their European tour, to perform a reggae-trad inspired ‘G.A.A Disco’. Other up and coming Irish acts include; Rhob Cunningham, Elm, Dr. Millar, Mongoose (who we saw recently and loved), Cuig, Carriages, Corner Boy, Rob Corcoran, The Blood Red Mountain Band, The Midnight Union Band, Elephant, Saint Sister, Elaine, Petonc, Basciville, Barry McCormack, Majestic Bears, Na Tonnta, Sun.Set.Ships, The Marriannes, Anna Mieke, The Ocelots, Carron & Kate O’Callaghan with more to be announced late August.
Beyond the music there’s lots of other stuff going on including storytelling from national treasures such as Batt Burns, Jack Lynch, Eddie Lenihan, and Aideen Mc Bride. Or if you look for something even more alternative, there are talks and workshops on Ancient Druidism and Shamanism, African song and Dance workshops, Viking Battle Re-enactments, Bicycle Jousting, Yoga, Astronomy and Bushcraft.
The festival will launch with a night to showcase the festivals music and storytelling, on the 22nd of August in Whelans of Dublin. Gerrup!
