Hunters Moon Festival in Carrick-on-Shannon

Guys, there is an exciting weekend just around the bend; The Hunters Moon Festival is waiting for our call!

The next three sentences I am stealing from their website for you, but I’ll link you to it as well for the full programme and ticket prices and options etc…

 Hunters Moon Music and Art Festival will take place on the 28th, 29th, and 30th of October in the Northwest of Ireland in Carrick on Shannon, County Leitrim. Hunters Moon Festival is an experimental music, art and film festival combining unique visual art and music in the unique town of Carrick on Shannon. Tickets are available to all music events. There are festival tickets, day tickets and evening tickets on sale. Check the tickets page for full info.

There is free stuff too, open to everyone, so in times like these I am pointing that out especially, just to get a taste of what’s in store for us!

The Hunters Moon Arts Trail: An Arts Trail will wind its way through the streets on Carrick over the weekend of the festival. Maps of the Arts Trail are available at the Box Office. All art spaces are free and open to the public. Thanks to the keen eye and the hard work of our art curator, Caroline Walsh.

The Short Experimental Films Cinema: in the box office in Murtagh’s Courtyard, Main Street. Right down my street for that matter!

“Seek What They Sought” Art Exhibition by Tim Kerr: opening at 8 pm in the Jury Room of the Dock Arts Centre on Friday 28th of October. Looking bright and cheerful, come and have a drink and see the new art on those walls!

Deejays at Murtagh’s Bar – Friday 4 -8 pm and Saturday and Sunday 12 – 8 pm:  There will be festival deejays playing everything from folk rock to medieval bands to art rock discos in Murtagh’s Bar all through the weekend.  This is open and free to everyone!

Day of the Dead Procession: Sunday 30th October 6 – 7 pm, meet at the Dock Arts Centre. Whoa, sounding spooky scary – looks like bringing the small people along, do the whole fancy dress affair thing, and maybe put some sucky sweets into your pockets too, just in case!

There is a long line up of bands playing on all of the nights, I can’t even start typing them all down so you better check that website, the Weekend Tickets are available in THE LEITRIM DESIGN HOUSE leading up to the festival, whereas Tickets for night-time performances will go on sale from 8:30pm at The Dock for that evening’s performance and are available for purchase on the door (subject to availability, as always and of course!).

That covers it all? It probably didn’t, but it’s a start to get you nosy!

See you at the weekend, looks like one more perk to be had in town, Murtagh’s Bar as the main sponsor of the whole festival is offering 10% off all food for the attendees of the festival, I might meet you at that bar  too so!

in Halloween mode,

Your D B

    Hello Secret Blogger,
    the lady in question is Blue Yodel, aka Fiona Kennedy, from Sheffield. Initially from out in the foyer I couldn’t figure out what I was listening to,!!!! …… so I thought I better check it out…..i was mesmerised by the music/sound piece with video in the background. Really really great stuff. Challenging perhaps, some may think, but well worth making the effort !

    She and her husband who make up “The Hunter Gracchus” were here last night/early this morning , but i missed them. Ho hum…..
