We are glad to be able to announce that streamed and online versions of this summer’s West Cork Chamber Music Festival and the West Cork Literary Festival will replace the live versions cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Irish Government’s COVID-19 Roadmap is enabling us to come up with plans for Masters of Tradition in Bantry in August. Keep an eye on the website and our social media for further announcements.

We can only 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.
