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.
