In celebration of Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann‘s (2019) second year in Drogheda, composer and conductor Michael Holohan presents a very special concert called Airs of Old Drogheda and Ceiliúradh Seamus Ennis.
You will hear a combination of enthralling Irish music on the night.
There will be local traditional airs that haven’t been heard in centuries, musical tributes to Seamus Ennis and extracts from Holohan’s recent album The Road to Lough Swilly.
