Following a stellar launch year, 2024 promises an eclectic mix of talented artists and curated live performances on the North Coast. Making his first appearance in Northern Ireland, the acclaimed artist will be lighting up the Temple with his unique, modern take on folk traditions.

Expect a mix of evocative songs and foot-stomping fiddle tunes, with exceptional musicianship and singing.
