If there's a will, there's a way. Like so many events since the pandemic hit, Temple Bar TradFest has gone virtual for 2021 with four nights of uplifting concerts recorded live from Dublin Castle.
The annual event has always attracted a large overseas audience into Ireland each January, as well as attracting thousands of Dubliners into some of the city’s most iconic heritage venues to enjoy traditional Irish and Folk music.
The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic means that this won’t be possible in January 2021, so the event organisers have created four stunning nights of music featuring some of Ireland's leading performers, all filmed in the splendour of the state apartments in Dublin Castle.
Featuring some of the biggest names in Irish music including Hothouse Flowers, Emma Langford and The Mulcahy Family, it's certainly a series not to be missed.
