Claudine Murray, marketing manager of TradFest joined Norma Burke on The Arts Show to talk about this year’s festival.

TradFest is Ireland’s premiere celebration of traditional and folk music and takes place from the 24th -28th January.

The festival showcases the cream of both Irish and international trad and folk artists and also provides a stage to promote the next generation of Irish musicians. As well as a chance to experience live music in some of Dublin’s most historic places there are also a number of fringe events – masterclasses, family events.
