Buncrana Gears Up For Another Great Festival
Last March the town of Buncrana, in the north of the Inishowen peninsula, Co. Donegal hosted its first traditional arts festival.
Few towns in Ireland can compare with Buncrana in terms of the amount and quality of musical talent it has yielded over the years.
To recognize this, Ar Ais Arís, Buncrana's Traditional Arts Festival was created as a celebration of the wealth of talent to emerge from the area.The inaugural festival was a homecoming of sorts for the many musicians, singers and dancers who were born and reared in the town and its environs, and who now rank among the top artists performing internationally. Of course last year also saw the return to the stage, after a 15 year absence of the legendary Pyros.
And on March 30th 2007 they are going to do it all again!
