All folk’d up for trad and Irish at Gaelic Sounds

All Folk'd Up

WITHIN a packed festival schedule in Limerick this summer, Gaelic Sounds is more trad than pop and more banjos than brit pop. Early bird tickets took just an hour to sell out.  

The home of Limerick GAA will host George Murphy & Rising Sons, All Folk’d Up, The Highstool Prophets, Fieldsy and headline act The Whistlin’ Donkeys! on Friday August 30.

Headliner The Whistlin’ Donkeys return to Limerick with their unique blend of trad and celtic rock.  

This Tyrone sextet have had a stellar rise from their hometown pub sessions to selling out Vicar Street and the RDS earlier this year, while managing to squeeze in back to back sold out tours of the USA and Australia. Expect to hear hits like ‘Bee’s Wing, ‘South Australia’ and of course ‘Hills of Donegal. 

Joining them is one of the most exciting voices in Irish folk music, George Murphy & The Rising Sons. Fresh from a sold-out tour of the USA and Ireland.

They will bring their perfect blend of trad, folk and rock ‘n’ roll to the stage, blending whistles, fiddles and banjos with electric guitars, bass and percussion. 

All Folk’d Up have earned acclaim as one of the standout new wave bands on the Irish folk circuit.

High energy Celtic rock artist Fieldsy is originally from Dublin but her passionate performances have resonated with audiences all over the world.
