Welcome to the third year of the West Cork Chamber Music Fringe Festival!
This year our ten free performances will see artists play further afield in a selection of West Cork towns and villages including Ahaskista, Castletownbere, Schull and Skibbereen. There will also be 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 Full Programme, Masterclasses, Fringe Events and/or a listing by Artist by selecting the relevant tabs.
