The concerts will be held at the Brú na Sí Cultural Centre, a spacious and welcoming venue that is well-known for hosting cultural events.

Each week, a different group of talented musicians will take to the stage at Brú na Sí to perform a mix of traditional Irish tunes and new music inspired by the Irish tradition. The lineup will feature both local artists and internationally renowned musicians, ensuring a diverse and exciting range of performances throughout the summer.
