BETWEEN the jigs and the reels, there's a lot happening in Cavan this week, where the annual fleadh is well under way.

Musicians young and old were hitting all the right notes at the annual Scoil Eigse hosted by Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.

But the fleadh is not just about traditional Irish music, with artists such as Sharon Shannon, Dervish and bluegrass legend Tim O Brien taking to the various stages around the town.

Playing his innovative 'grammahorn' at the Fleadh yesterday, in our picture by Lorraine Teevan, is Kevin McCormick. Go to www.fleadh2011cavan.ie for further details.
