Summer has arrived and this fantastic weather is making us look forward even more to the June Bank Holiday weekend and Cuisle Chorca Dhuibhne:Dingle’s Global Rhythm Festival (Jun 2- 4).
As a community-based not-for-profit festival we want as many people, adults and children to get involved and enjoy themselves over the weekend. There will be various drumming and dance workshops available for all levels and abilities, gigs and interactive drum circles.
The focus is on Fun!!!!
The festival tent returns for a second year and will be based in An Conair Bar beer garden, so in the (extremely, highly, impossibly) unlikely event of bad weather all events will go ahead as planned.
We’re introducing a new element to CCD this year on Saturday afternoon at 5pm following a performance by Different Skins there will be an improvisational Drum Jam session providing everyone with an opportunity to join in, lay down a few grooves and rhythms and enjoy themselves. So bring along your drum, bell, shaker or whatever and feel the global rhythm.
The full festival programme is available to see on this website – Right here – Right now.
Don’t miss out!!! Get your groove on this June Bank Holiday weekend.
This year’s festival highlights will include: Djembe workshops with Luis César Ewande Bodhrán Workshops with Brian Fleming evening showcase performance with Luis César Ewande, Brazilian dance party with Maracatu Ilu Brilhante and Splanc DCB – World beats DJ set with Ben Ó Faoláin and more to be announced..
