Niall Hanna


Support for this special afternoon show will be courtesy of Niall Hanna. A beautiful acoustic player and performer in the folk tradition, Niall hails from County Tyrone, where he is fast developing a reputation for his delivery of traditional songs and instrumentals, alongside more contemporary material. He was recently selected for The Young Musicians Platform Award from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and is a name to watch in acoustic guitar and folk circles.

Weekend Wind Down

As the festival enters its last day, The Ivy Bar welcomes a wonderful afternoon of mellow acoustic music from some of Northern Ireland’s finest players and singers.

Errol Walsh and Ted Ponsonby will be joined by Joe Murray on bass and harmonies, a trio offering a selection of country, blues and folk steeped in the Americana tradition – expect some fine picking and seasoned vocals and harmonies from this experienced trio.
