We are glad to have been able to present streamed and online versions of this summer’s West Cork Chamber Music Festival and the West Cork Literary Festival, replacing the live versions cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Masters of Tradition takes place in Bantry from 19 - 23 August. The three concerts in the Maritime Hotel, Bantry are now sold out but this year we also have a programme of virtual concerts.

We have only been able to do this thanks to the generous support of the Arts Council of Ireland, the Crespo Foundation, Cork County Council, Failte Ireland and the Friends of West Cork Music.
