Drogheda Traditional Music Weekend


Drogheda Traditional Music Weekend now in its 22nd year, brings some of the most accomplished & talented traditional musicians, singers and dancers throughout Ireland and overseas to Drogheda on the last weekend of November with the generous support of Louth County Council. There is a special emphasis on having sessions accessible to family audiences in various venues and a focus on traditional singing due to the strong tradition locally. This is achieved through sessions in cafes, restaurants, public venues, heritage locations and through master classes and schools programmes.


As part of this year’s Drogheda Trad Weekend, the exclusive launch of Gerry O Connor’s new album “LAST NIGHT’S FUN”

Long known as Gerry ‘Fiddle’ O'Connor, this is one fiddler whose pulse is quickened by the sheer delight in the tunes. As a fourth-generation fiddle player, he knows the value of the shared tune. On this his 2nd solo recording, Gerry draws from a wide range of sources and the album features a veritable who’s who of traditional music. 

Time: 2pm
