Spirit of Folk is a 3-day, family friendly festival running this September in the stunning grounds of Dunderry Park, Co. Meath. Over the weekend you'll be rockin' to some of the finest and freshest acts that folk music has to offer, but it won't stop there. Spirit of Folk is a celebration of all things folk! Folk arts, folk crafts, folk games, folk spirituality, folk lore, folk philosophy and that's only what's filed under F!
Spirit of Folk will showcase some of the highlights of the UK and Irish folk scene, see the music line-up for the latest listings. Hear a whole range of sounds, from chilled out folk singer songwriters, to upbeat, expansive folk rock, to some traditional seisún tunes. A 'living history' area will give you the chance to see ancient crafts and skills brought to life by experimental archaeologists and you'll get the chance to witness some of the weapon smith's products in action (from a safe distance) at the battle re-enactments!
There will be a range of talks and workshops on spirituality in a specially constructed Shamanic dome, where you can experience Irish Shamanic and Druidic ceremonies in an intimate and immersive environment. Also, see a smorgasbord of storytellers who will be spinning all manner of lively and legendary yarns in the cairn. An event not to be missed! Dates to be confirmed.
