Fringe Events 2019

Welcome to the third year of the West Cork Chamber Music Fringe Festival!

In 2019 our ten free performances saw artists play further afield in a selection of West Cork towns and villages including Ahaskista, Castletownbere, Schull and Skibbereen. There were also daily pop-ups around the town of Bantry and a Choir workshop.

 

See our programme of 2019 Fringe events below. You can opt to view our 2019 Full Programme, Masterclasses, Fringe Events and/or a listing by Artist by selecting the relevant tabs.

You’ll also find more information about our 2019 Fringe Festival, including a summary of Artists, at the bottom of the page here.
