Letterfrack will be a bundle of excitement as the annual Sea Week kicks off on the 23rd Oct. This is a festival that celebrates everything that’s great about Connemara. You’ll hear the best of music with great local players like – the Hernon family, the Kanes, Johnny O Halloran and Johnny Conneely, joined by great players from all over the country – Danny O Mahony, Conor Keane and Mary Shannon. But the trad lads won’t have it all their own way as you’ll hear some great blues and jazz from Johnny Conneely, Jimmy Fitz Trio, The Good Hustle and the Cajun Play Boys.
You can pick up a picture at the small works expo, enjoy a film in the AV centre in the National Park, enjoy a concert in the unique setting of the Kylemore Gothic Church, have some stylish food with chefs Jonathan Keane and Colin O Daly or go for a ramble with an expert guide. All the madness culminates in honour of the great Johnny Connolly where some of the countrys best musicians will present him with tunes they have special composed in his honour. Starting at Mollys at 3pm on bank holiday Monday 31st Oct.
