Headlining this year will be Paddy Casey and Moxie

Paddy Casey is an Irish singer-songwriter from Dublin. When he was 12 years old he began busking on the streets of Dublin. Paddy released his first album Amen (So Be It) in 1999. This album was certified triple platinum in Ireland. The ‘Saints and Sinners’ singer will be playing in The Bank on Saturday Night 10 September with support from new trad band on the block A Fair Distance and the night will finish off with Newry folk legends Crubeen taking to the stage of The Bank Beer Garden. A night not to be missed.

Moxie are a band all hailing from the West Coast of Ireland.  Their music has a traditional backbone and is influenced by a number of genres of music, but very important amongst them is the traditional music of county Sligo. Moxie are fast becoming a festival favourite in Europe and beyond and this year already has seen them performing at the Port Fairy Festival in Australia and closer to home playing a slot in the Late Late Show.  They will be playing ‘Live at the Market’ on Friday 9 September. 

Five exciting new events that are taking place during the Fleadh are: 

Trad Cruise on the tall ship Soteria: Numbers are limited so be sure to get your tickets quickly.
