Musical Picnic with the Wild Turkeys
Join us for a family picnic lunchtime concert where we bring the outdoors indoors with some great music and other fun activities.
Come early and meet the musicians, try out some instruments, and have fun with musical face-painting! Then come into the John Field Room to enjoy our interactive concert of Irish traditional music and family favourites.
The Wild Turkeys are an energetic traditional Irish music group with a unique lively, upbeat sound that will guarantee to have your foot tapping.
There are 6 core members in the group, consisting of two fiddles, banjo, accordion, guitar and they are delighted to team up with Bodhran extraordinaire Andy Reilly from Riverdance to perform everything from their beautiful slow airs to spirited high energy trad tunes. The group hails from a small village on the East Coast of Ireland called Ballygarrett in Co. Wexford and all the musicians, prize winners at all Ireland level, have a busy professional career both nationally and internationally.
Foyer activities from 12:15pm
Concert at 1pm
