Lawrence Reeves Posted April 25, 2019 Share Posted April 25, 2019 Back in Ennis again. Consairtín 2019 kicks off today at 2:30, and yes an extra day of workshops / concerts / and sessions have been added this year. Each year this wonderful festival has grown in large numbers. The town of Ennis offers everything needed for an event of this size. The organization for the festival by Tim Collins, Áine Hensey very impressive. Each year, with the help of their team ensures that Consairtín runs like a clock. No matter if your first time attending or a regular, you are made welcome and informed of all events. This year in addition to the extra day, I am happy to see the inclusion of visitors from around the world included on the programme. Always nice to see the concertina and other players from around the world to gather and share their love of this crazy instrument, and immerse themselves into the music of Ireland. Clare is the Mecca for concertinas in Ireland, and the music will go on until the late hours every night. So, if you have never been to Consairtín, put it on your calendar for 2020. Always the weekend after Easter. See you in Ennis. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
