Session Trail

Below are the details from theEnnis Trad Fest 2016.

Official Festival Music sessions, were “hosted” by a Session Host. Each of the hosted sessions had musicians allocated to it as normal. The allocated musicians will know where and when they are playing but, apart from the Session Host, the musicians will not know with whom they will be playing – and neither will the audiences! We are confident that this “Find and Seek Experience” will enhance the character and atmosphere of the Festival for both musicians and all those who come out in search of a tune.
