A SINGER, a harpist and a three-piece cello band took to Ireland's most famous bridge to launch the equally eclectic Temple Bar TradFest.

Singer-songwriter Eleanor McEvoy, Irish harpist Seana Davey and Latvian cello trio Melo-M (pictured) welcomed the festival's ninth year with an impromptu performance on Dublin's Ha'penny Bridge.

Up to 15,000 people will descend on the capital leading up to the five-day festival, which begins on Wednesday, January 22.

Over 200 free events are planned alongside ticketed gigs starting at €10.

Headliners include We Banjo 3, Paul Brady, Johnny Duhan and Frances Black.
