Each summer since 2018, we have produced a free lunchtime series presenting and showcasing a wide range of local traditional music acts in our foyer space. Since 2020, the series has been curated by teenage musicians from the region who curate the series and choose the line-up of duets and trios that will be presented over the course of June, July and August at the theatre.
This year's Trad@Lunch series is curated with support from Lisa Golden.
Trad@Lunch takes place in the theatre foyer on Wednesdays at lunchtime between 1.10 and 1.50pm from 10 May - 30 Aug. Enjoy forty minutes of music featuring some of Ireland's most renowned musicians and rising stars including...
