Tradition Now


Over the weekend of the 19th and 20th June the National Concert Hall, together with the Arts Council, present over eight streamed concerts by leading Irish musicians – John Spillane, Steve Cooney, Varo and Special Guests, Daoirí Farrell, Louise and Michelle Mulcahy and more - in a variety of performances as part of ‘Tradition Now’.  
The series, which has garnered a growing audience over a six-year period, has evolved into a much-anticipated annual event celebrating innovation in traditional music while staying true to its roots. This year’s Tradition Now focuses on the new in a tradition that is once ancient and ever-evolving, exploring themes of place, home and identity through music.
