Tradfest is one of those annual events that you have saved in your calendar, afraid of ever double booking and being denied the opportunity to revel in the marvels of some rollicking trad and folk. The festival occurs at the beating heart of Dublin’s arts and culture district, Temple Bar. It’s a place where buskers traditionally test out their newest songs and galleries open late for exhibition openings. In January, Meeting House Square is set alight with the luminescent joy that Irish traditional music brings to proceedings. There will be international acts performing shoulder to shoulder with the most awe-inspiring session musicians you’ve ever heard. You’ll be moved by lilting celtic airs or perhaps you’ll let your feet do the talking with a jig or a reel. Either way, Temple Bar Tradfest 2018 is a weekend to dive into, heart and soul. Experience the true essence of Irish life, with good times soundtracked by great music.

Quintessentially Viennese, the music comes straight from the heart as our dancers flamboyantly whirl with billowing gowns and distinctive elegance. The giddy romance and gilded ballrooms of old Vienna are brought to life by the music of the King of the Waltz and friends. From the gentle humour of Wine, Women and Song with its swirling flourish and brass fanfare, the sparkle of the polka and the toe-tapping, hand-clapping favourite Radetsky March to the evocative Blue Danube Waltz, it’s a much-loved classic, after classic, after classic….
It’s hard to think of another songwriting partnership as golden as that of Erasure. For 32 years, without a break or break-up, Andy Bell and Vince Clarke have mined a rich seam of creativity that has led to chart-conquering singles, a string of immaculate albums, a BRIT, an Ivor Novello Award and now World Be Gone, their seventeenth studio album. Celebrating their new album, they have announced a headline show at Olympia Theatre on 31st January 2018. Produced by the band themselves and recorded shortly after their 30th anniversary celebrations – during which they scored yet another UK Top 10 with their hits package Always. Since releasing their first single in 1985, Erasure have sold more than 25 million albums worldwide. Their 30th anniversary celebrations saw them deliver a Top 10 collection of singles, a 13-disc career-spanning box set and vinyl editions of their entire back catalogue. Since then, they’ve been busier than ever. In addition to recording World Be Gone, in 2016 Vince Clarke set up his own label, Very Records, releasing 2Square, his collaboration with Paul Hartnoll, and the Reed & Caroline debut, Buchla & Singing. Andy Bell continued to explore the character of Torsten through the critically acclaimed […]
