Ed Reavy Weekend host The 2015 Comhaltas Tour of Ireland

The October festival will involve a line-up of concerts including:


The 2015 Comhaltas Concert Tour of Ireland on Friday October 16th in The Cavan Crystal Hotel.  


Saturday night there will be a concert involving headlining act “Top Floor Taivers”  a young Glasgow based band combining stunning vocals with piano, fiddle and clarsach to create unique arrangements of traditional folk songs and tunes as well as their own compositions. The 4 piece band includes the highly acclaimed and wonderfully talented fiddle player, Gráinne Brady, a native of Cavan.


There will be a 50 minute presentation by talented band “Shaskeen” who have been delighting dancers and concert goers since 1970. The concert will also feature a number of other acts such as the highly renowned Workshop Tutors who will have been imparting their knowledge and experiences earlier in the day, The Lough Oughter Ceili Band, the specially prepared Ed Reavy Ensemble. Other events include Music Workshops, Instrument Maintenance Workshops, Fiddle Masterclasses, an Exhibition and Talk on Ed Reavy presented by Aogán Ó Fearghail, Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael, and Antóin MacGabhann.

Where there is music there must be dance, the Ed Reavy Festival have teamed up with the experts in the Cavan region and are re-instating the “Dancing in The Drumlins” event which in the past was an event not to be missed by set dancers nationwide. This year, Dancing in The Drumlins, will run for Friday, Saturday and Sunday with 3 Ceilis and many workshops for Set Dancing and Steps-Friday we have the wonderful “Rise The Dust” in The Back Yard at 9 pm, while Saturday night at 9pm in The Cavan Crystal, one can dance to the Cork based “An Striolán” and then on Sunday afternoon at 2.30pm, dancing will be to the unmistakable sound “Shaskeen”, again in The Cavan Crystal.
