Caoimhín Ó Dochartaigh was one of Derry’s best-loved musicians and a dedicated supporter of young musicians. This event focuses on promoting emerging and local talent within the folk and traditional music genres. The finalists of our best new trad talent competition perform in the first part of the concert, competing for a place on the bill at one of the festival’s headline concerts.

New and emerging musicians and bands are advised not to miss out on this exciting opportunity which could be the perfect launch pad for a career in music.
