Lovers of blues from all over Ireland and beyond converge on Monaghan in September for this festival which has grown in stature every year since it began. With a reputation for great music and great audiences it seems to attract ever better acts each year and those playing enjoy themselves every bit as much as the audience.
There are three main strands to events. Three acts play to large crowds each night in the Marquee from 10pm until the wee small hours. Earlier in the Market House there are acoustic sessions in a smaller more intimate setting. Meanwhile a Blues Trail around the town’s pubs has a very varied programme of free gigs going on late into the night.
While there is plenty to enjoy for hard core aficionados of the blues, there is something for anyone: if you enjoys good music and good time you’ll fit right in.
Date and details for 2020 subject to confirmation.
