Saturday, June 3rd sees the brilliant Horslips Tribute Swords of Light headline the inaugural Boyne Valley Trad&Folk Festival.

Swords of Light are endorsed by Horslips with Barry Devlin even saying that they are the Horslips Tribute band of the future. Niamh Parsons has come to be known as one of the most distinctive voices in Irish music. Her voice has drawn comparisons to such venerated singers as Dolores Keane, June Tabor and Sandy Denny. The great Scottish balladeer Archie Fisher said of Niamh, ‘a songstress like her comes along once or twice in a generation.’ Niamh will be joined onstage with Graham Dunne and this will be a very special performance by the two. Seán Mathews is a singer of songs that warm, rouse and inform. "Mathews has a good way with words in the songs on offer and he delivers the tracks with a sense of real feeling that must come across very powerfully in live performances." Irish Music Magazine "There is a remarkable maturity in Mathew’s songs and it definitely transcends his time on this planet. His unique brand of urban folk is grounded in realism that the listener can relate to on Welcome to Ballsgrove, as his tales weave cleverly blend the landscape and people within, detailing their lives, loves, hopes and loss." Folk and Tumble Three incredible performances for day 1 of the Boyne Valley Trad&Folk Festival

A guaranteed night of fun is going to be had. Tickets are just €12.50 per night or €20 for the weekend.
