Countdown on for Carrick Waster Music Festival

Vladimir & Anton Jablokov The Violinists

The countdown is on for Carrick Water Music Festival, taking place  July 10-14, with a mix of music, culture, family events, fringe activities and lots more! 

Legendary folk-trad group Stockton’s Wing perform  July 12 at The Landmark Hotel as part of their very special Retrospective tour. During their career they recorded and performed with The Dubliners, Sammy Davis Jr and The Clancy Brothers, played at both Michael Jackson thriller shows in Ireland and appeared in Oscar nominated movie The Field.
  Later that night, neo trad-fusion group Moxie will perform a late night show at The Dock, playing intricate acoustic Irish music with a fresh urban style heavily influenced by Electro, Jazz, House, and Rock putting them at the forefront of new music from Ireland. 

Classical fans are in for a treat on July 13 at The Bush Hotel when Vladimir & Anton Jablokov The Violinists return to Carrick, accompanied by piano and double bass to perform their classical virtuosic compositions.
On  July 14, legendary singer-songwriter Brian Kennedy will perform an acoustic set, returning to St. Georges Church for an intimate evening of music from one of Ireland’s most loved musicians. 
Earlier that day, don’t miss a special afternoon performance from The Mellow Tonics, a mixed voice choir from Dublin with a repertoire stretching the divide of popular contemporary music to classical contemporary led by composer Norah Constance Walsh. 
Expect their own unique twist on music by Phil Collins, The Stunning and John Spillane. 

On July 10 enjoy an evening of classical music with The Lyrical Cello, where St. Georges’ Church will be brought to life by cellist Miriam Roycroft and pianist Lance Coburn with wonderful music from all around the world, including works by Martinu, Beethoven, de Falla and Chopin, and others performed on the cello and piano.
Other highlights include lunchtime recitals, street entertainment, free music trail, workshops, jazz cruises and more.
