Caoimhín Ó Dochartaigh was one of Derry’s best-loved traditional musicians and a dedicated supporter of young musicians. This event focuses on promoting emerging and young talent within the folk and traditional music genres.

Bands, duos and solo performers compete for the chance to perform during one of the festival’s main concerts, sharing a bill with one of the headline acts. The winning act will also go home with a cash prize!

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.

Information on how to apply for the 2019 Caoimhín Ó Dochartaigh Stage will be available soon.
