TRAD fans should clear the diary from September 11 to 14 for this year's Dingle Tradfest which has been going from strength to strength since its establishment four years ago.
This year the festival will host a series of concerts, a themed session trail and outdoor events including a session on Cnoc a'Cairn and the addition of a busking competition.
The festival focuses on young traditional musicians and up and coming acts featuring this year include The Paddy O Callaghan Trio from Scotland, Cillian King & Band, Barry Tierney and the winners of the online group competition, Squeeze Box Social.
The annual Trad Disco with DJ Conor Crimmins will take place on Saturday night of the festival while the main stage festival concert in St James Church will feature renowned artists such as Tola Custy and Laoise Kelly.
Plenty of free sessions are also promised and more artists and events will be announced in the coming weeks.
