Spirit of Folk Line Up Revealed!

We have unveiled our Line-up along with  some very unique side attractions!

At which summer festival would you find a bald eagle flying display, next to a bug hotel, while Vikings maraud to a soundtrack of raucous trad and folk? Spirit of Folk, of course! Hailed as one of the quirkiest festivals on the scene, today Spirit of Folk unveils its music lineup, along with some very interesting activities for all the ages. 

Meteor Award winning Mick Flannery will headline the 2015 event, set to take place in Dunderry Park, Co Meath this September 18-20th. 

SOFF People - Harry Bookless!

For the next couple of weeks we will be hearing from the different folk that make the Spirit of Folk Festival happen. This week we have Harry Bookless, Dublin based sound engineer and musician. Harry has been with us from the start and is always around to provide the craic and amazingly professional sound advice (pardon the pun!) Harry is also a member of three bands (Carriages, Little xs for Eyes and Colour Canyon)  and we recommend you check them out! 

SOFF People - Claire McCluskey!

Over the last few weeks, we here at SOFF HQ have gotten in touch with many of the folk that have made the fest happen to write a guest blog about their experience. They have been coming in fast and hard and lots of memories and good times have been stirred up in the meantime! This week we have Dublin based Artist Claire McCluskey (or the McCluskey Huskey as we call her!). Claire is on the art team but you might just catch her with a screwdriver assembling a stage at 4am in the morning. Thats just how she rolls!
