Description:
Since 1979, the annual Cork Folk Festival has been showcasing Folk Music of Europe, Cork and Ireland.Cork is situated in the South West of Ireland, it is the largest of all the Irish counties and in many ways the most varied. Rich farmlands and river valleys contrast with the wild sandstone hills of the west, and above all there is the magnificent coastline scooped and fretted by the Atlantic into great bays and secret coves, strewn with rocky headlands and long soft golden sands.  

 

Performers:

La Bottine Souriante, Carlos Nunez, Eddi Reader, Liam O Flynn, Marta Sebestyen & Muzsikas, Dick Gaughan, Freddie White, Altan
