Cup of Tae Festival

The 2022 Cup of Tae festival will take place from Friday April 29th – Monday 2nd May

The festival honours legendary fiddle player John ‘The Tae’ Gallagher was born in West End, Ardara in 1923, with live traditional music, masterclasses and performances right across the lively pubs, bars and cultural locations in the town.

This year we’re delighted to honour the world renowned accordion player Dermot Byrne who will conduct the Masterclass in Accordion. Masterclasses will also be hosted by Brid Harper and Michael O’Rourke. For the full run down of events see the Festival Programme.
