Children’s’ Concert
‘Star Wars Came to the Skelligs!’

Venue The Lighthouse, Cromwell Point

For children of all ages (and adults!) this 45-minute performance, at the stunning location of The Lighthouse on Valentia, takes its inspiration from the big events of last summer and will cover a range of music and instrumental soundscapes that will transport the audience to another planet….

Vyvienne Long with special guests, The Blunnie Sisters

Venue The Royal Hotel, Knightstown

To close our festival, we have a very special visitor to Valentia. Vyvienne Long is a unique artist on the Irish music scene and beyond, and her beautifully disarming and intensely personal songs have been in demand for soundtracks in Ireland and internationally including Kirsten Sheridan’s “Dollhouse”, the Icelandic documentary “The Future Of Hope” and RTE’s drama series “RAW”. Admired as a compelling vocalist and songwriter of incisive wit, critics have drawn comparisons with Björk, Tori Amos and Joanna Newsome.
