The Songs Our Fathers Loved - Rebirth of a Nation

presented by Shaskeen and The Wingers

Shaskeen and The Wingers invite you to participate in a nostalgic homage to the early recording pioneers of Irish music and song.

There have been many landmark radio programmes over the decades but one, which provides the inspiration for this performance was the Walton’s programme presided over by Leo Maguire. The programme featured artists from Walton’s own label, Glenside Records, and included Joe Lynch, Charlie Magee, Mary McConigle and Delia Murphy together with many others.

Leo Maguire’s persistent message to the listeners was: “A weekly reminder of the grace and the beauty that lies in our heritage of Irish song, the songs our Fathers loved”.

Moxie

presented by glór

  • The children’s Performance at 12pm is suited to those aged 5+
  • The evening Performance at 9pm will be a standing event with special guest support


All hailing from the west coast Moxie are: Cillian Doheny, (tenor banjo/guitar), Jos Kelly, (button accordion/keyboard), Darren Roche, (button accordion), Ted Kelly, (tenor banjo), and Paddy Hazelton, (percussion).
Moxie’s music has a solid traditional backbone, inspired and shaped by the surrounds of the west of Ireland, but with progressive, world and jazz influences creeping in, Moxie’s music makes for a truly heady and distinctive sound and puts them at the forefront of new acoustic music from Ireland. They also provided the music for the sensational Prodijig, The Revolution which performed a 3 week sell-out run in Cork.

With their unmistakable approach, Moxie is a firm festival favourite in Europe, America, Australia and beyond, and they have built a reputation for their highly charged live performances.
