Ballinasloe, Co. Galway will be alive with Traditional Irish Music, Culture and Heritage from Friday 9th to Sunday 11th September 2016 for Féile Cheoil Larry Reynolds
Larry Reynolds was native of a townland close to Ballinasloe who, like so many of his time, emigrated to Boston in 1953. Over time he became a highly influential fiddle player, not only for his East Galway style but also because of the contribution he made to Irish culture in Boston and all over North America.
To commemorate Larry, the Festival was established in 2014 and now in its 3rd year, the festival has grown and is fast becoming an important event on the Trad Calendar.
The Alan Kelly Gang with Eddi Reader will open the festival with a concert in Ballinasloe Town Hall on Friday 9th September. A blend of Scottish & Traditional Irish Vocalists & Musicians, they have left audiences spellbound, it promises to be a spectacular night of the best of Celtic music and song.
The rest of the weekend is a packed itinerary including Trad Music, Song & Sean Nós Dance workshops followed by a Tutors Recital, an Irish Music Pub Trail, a Lecture on The East Galway Style of Music, Craft Exhibitions, an Historic Walking Tour of Ballinasloe plus Schools Art and Poetry Competitions and that’s just on the Saturday
Sunday will see one of the weekend’s highlights – The 1st Larry Reynolds Open All-Ireland U-18 Fiddle Competition. With a prize fund of €250 and a Perpetual Cup for the winner the competition is certain to be high.
Other events on that day include Mass with local trad musicians, a singers circle event in The Pillar House, a Céilí in Hayden’s Hotel with the Glenside, a Junior Seisiún in The Dunlo Tavern, a concert by the newly formed trad group – Gatehouse, who have just released their 5* (Irish Times) CD, Tús Nua and there will no doubt, be many open seisúin during the day and indeed, throughout the weekend, all over the town.
