Eleven days and nights of Festival magic draw to a close in St Canice’s with a farewell feast of music, poetry, song and dance featuring many of the performers and resident artists who have made this year’s programme so unique.

Featuring Martin Hayes, fellow Gloaming members Dennis Cahill and Iarla Ó Lionáird, Quartet stalwarts Doug Wieselman and Liz Knowles, actor Stephen Rea, viola da gamba player Liam Byrne and fiddler Cleek Schrey, master organist Malcolm Proud, composer and cellist Neil Martin, piano man Brian Connor and sean nós dancer Stephanie Keane, the Finale captures the spirit of the Festival in one unmissable event.
