The fourth Boyne Music Festival will take place August 5th to the 7th at Townley Hall in Drogheda and we couldn't be more excited about this summer's programme. The three day festival is packed with chamber music concerts, workshops, tours, readings and so much more. Among the international roster of musicians are Rita Manning, Chris Laurence, Jean Kelly, Sophie Junker, Adam Newman and the Manning Trio. In addition, we're delighted to welcome Syrian bouzouk player Salah Ammo and Austrian percussionist Peter Gabis as well as poet Anne-Marie Fyfe who will give both a poetry workshop and a reading at the festival. Again we will feature a select group of Boyne Music Festival Young Artists in one afternoon concert and offer a family concert programme designed to delight both young and old alike. There is truly something for everyone, so explore our programme and join us in Drogheda this August!
