Castlewellan’s Celtic Fusion Set To Entertain the Crowds Again
THE Celtic Fusion International Musical Arts Festival 2013 returns to Castlewellan in County Down, Northern Ireland, for its twelfth incarnation over the weekend from Friday 28 June until Sunday 30 June.
This year the main event was launched in May at a Celtic Fusion showcase concert at the fabulous Lodge Cultural Centre with Breanndán Ó Beaghlaoich and Laoise Kelly supported by The Grainne Holland Band.
The Festival weekend in June includes a host of talented Irish musicians such as Niamh Dunne of Beoga, who will be launching her new CD on Friday 28 June supported by Reel It In. Frankie Gavin and the New De Dannan will be the main act for Saturday 29 June supported by Niamh McGlinchey. Sunday 30 June will feature a host of fantastic acts from near and far including the Friel Sisters from Glasgow and The Back Yard Devils from New Brunswick in Canada. These will be free to the public and outdoors, (weather permitting of course).
With Celtic Fusion, you know that every event will be memorable and of the highest standard. So get ready for Castlewellan & Celtic Fusion 2013 and get your summer off to a flying start.
As in previous years, the festival is run by volunteers from the local Newcastle CCE with support from Down District Council and although we encourage everyone to buy a ticket, there is much on offer for free! Traditional music sessions can be enjoyed throughout the weekend in this beautiful market town nestled in the shade of the Mountains of Mourne.
