Masters of Tradition: A Traditional Music Festival
Masters of Tradition is a five-day traditional music festival held each August in the West Cork town of Bantry
Masters of Tradition Festival features a series of performances, covering the full spectrum of Irish traditional music. The performances take place in Bantry House, one of Ireland’s most exquisite historic mansions, and in one of Bantry’s other special venues, St Brendan’s Church.
