This year’s West Wicklow Festival, taking place at Russborough House and St. Mary’s Church in Blessington, will feature a star-studded line-up with musicians coming from all over the globe and with a diverse range of musical talents sure to satisfy even the most discerning of ears.
Kicking off on Thursday 16th of May, the USA’s Elena Urioste and UK’s Tom Poster will be treating Russborough House to a concert six months after the release of their highly celebrated album Estrellita.
Festival founder, concert pianist, and Ireland’s own Fiachra Garvey will be joining the sensational French string quartet Quatuor Voce on Friday the 17th for what will doubtlessly be an audial feast as the weekend rolls in.
The Russborough House and Parklands will come alive with family fun on Saturday the 18th with a host of family music workshops and a children’s music trail to keep the little ones entertained while encouraging their interest in music.
Trio Atanassov will be bringing Saturday evening to a close with their deep and transportive union of violin, cello, and piano.
Sunday the 19th of May will bring a triumphant double bill with Australian soprano Lauren Fagan filling St. Mary’s Church with her rich tones as well as Fiachra Garvey’s piano playing at 1.30pm before the dynamic and expressive pianists Duo Játékok take the same stage later at 6.30pm.
There will be plenty to wow, entertain, and astonish at the West Wicklow Festival 2019, and with the date drawing ever closer – it’s never been more vital to get your tickets before they sell out completely.
