18th – 20th AUGUST 2017
Valentia Island is the perfect place for a Chamber Music Festival; small, idyllic, spectacularly beautiful and with an array of unique venues. 2017 Festival welcomes international musicians Francesco Dillon (cello-Italy, Quartetto Prometeo), Keith Pascoe (violin, Vanbrugh Quartet), Darragh Morgan (violin, Fidelio Trio) and Fishamble Sinfonia from Dublin, bringing programmes of chamber music and string orchestra to venues all over Valentia. Special guest Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin brings the Irish premiere of his recent book of Carolan arrangements to perform the closing concert on Sunday 20th. Cillian Vallely (uilleann pipes) of Lúnasa fame will join us on Friday 18th and on Sunday 20th will perform a solo set with guitarist, Patrick Doocey. Other pop-up events include young Iveragh singers, a ‘Meet the Composer’ interview and a special photography exhibition and talk: ‘Irish Traditional Music Captured on Camera’.

We look forward to welcoming you to this very special Festival.
