1 - 3 August 2014
We are delighted to announce the second Boyne Music Festival at Townley Hall in Drogheda, Ireland. This year's Festival brings together an incredible group of musicians, visual artists and a poet for a weekend of concerts, workshops, readings and much more. Musicians Rita Manning, Chris Laurence, Layla Claire, John Chest, Louis Stewart and the Manning Trio return to the Boyne Music Festival and are joined by new friends, Mark Lockheart, and Stephen Nicholls, among others. Stony Road Press will curate an exhibit featuring leading Irish printmakers and poet Martin Dyar will give a reading of his own work, as well as a talk on the life and work of Seamus Heaney. There will be a total of five chamber music concerts, a workshop for children and numerous tours of historic Townley Hall. We look forward to seeing you in August!

In order to make sure that the BMF is as amazing as possible, we have recently launched a Fund It campaign to raise €5000 Euro for this summer's festival. The funds will go towards the running costs of our festival which include venue hire, artist fees, piano tunings, transportation, publicity and much more. We've given ourselves until the 1st of July to do it. To read more about our campaign and how you can help, check out our Fund it page by clicking the link here: Fund It
This summer the glorious walls of Townley Hall will be filled with limited hand-made prints from many of Ireland's leading printmakers. Included will be the works of Michael Canning, Dorothy Cross, William Crozier, Charles Cullen, Diarmuid Delargy, Felim Egan, David Godbold, Richard Gorman, Brian O'Doherty, Barbara Rae, Patrick Scott, Amelia Stein, Donald Teskey, and Sara Lee.
The Boyne Music Festival is thrilled to be partnering with Stoney Road Press to make this exhibit possible. Read more...
