Inishbofin Set Dancing & Trad Weekend
September 29 - October 1
The Inishbofin Set Dancing & Trad Weekend will be held from the 29th September to the 1st October 2017.
This annual festival is emerging as the perfect way to wrap up the end of summer and embrace the winter. The Inishbofin Set Dancing and Trad Weekend has proven to be an impressive occasion resulting in Inishbofin overflowing with talent in the shape of dancers, musicians and artists alike. Building on the exceptional success of the last seven years, the eighth annual Inishbofin Set Dancing & Trad Weekend will no doubt be another successful year!
This weekend event will let advanced dancers brush up on their sets and beginners the confidence to get up and put into practice what they have learned during the weekend. The weekend will also highlight how set dancing plays a distinctive role in reviving the ongoing vibrancy of the artistic life on Inishbofin – which includes the invaluable contribution of the older generation of islanders in passing on the ‘Inishbofin Half Set.’
Confirmed so far for this year’s edition, the Striolán Ceilí Band will be performing for the weekend’s ceilís, and the wonderful tutors Mick Mulkerrin and Deirdre Tobin will be here to teach Set Dancing and Sean Nós Dancing workshops.
The weekend will run from Friday to Sunday evening and will see a wealth of entertainment through song and dance.
