Added to the Festival programme is Welsh music titan and Super Furry Animals’ frontman Gruff Rhys and a very special Irish guest yet to be announced, who will perform at Christchurch Cathedral on Friday March 13. The following night, Saturday March 14, BBC Radio 2 Folk award winners, Northern Irish-English alt-folk duo The Breath bring their unique and compelling sound to the Pepper Canister Church, along with Scottish piper and Guardian Folk Album of the Month winner Brìghde Chaimbeul with fiddle player Aidan O’Rourke. These two concerts form SEODA – A Celtic Collaboration: Ireland, Wales and Scotland and are presented in partnership with the Welsh and Scottish Governments in Ireland. SEODA highlights and strengthens the deep-rooted Celtic traditions that Ireland shares with its closest neighbours.
Dublin duo Stephen Shannon and Cillian Mc Donnell aka Mount Alaska bring their euphoric, electronic sounds to the Pepper Canister Church on Sunday March 15, while the ever impressive Dublin Gospel Choir will raise the rafters at the Pepper Canister on Monday March 16 and Tuesday March 17, with very special guests to be announced for both evenings. These shows are presented in partnership with Selective Memory.
