Getting ready for Boyne Music Festival

Preparations are under way for the sixth Boyne Music Festival which takes place in the magnificent Townley Hall, just outside Drogheda, over the August bank holiday weekend.

Each summer since 2013 the festival, organised by Ravensdale sisters Aisling and Julie-Anne Manning and their cousin Deirdre Brenner, brings great musicians, poets and artists together for an exciting weekend of concerts, talks, workshops and other special events.

This year's programme will include performances by Rita Manning, Paul Cassidy, Jacqueline Thomas, Aisling Manning, Julie-Anne Manning, Dorottya Lang, Deirdre Brenner, Robin Panter and the Chris Laurence Quartet.

There will be a poetry reading by Peter Fallon, tours of Townley Hall and surrounding area, a concert featuring rising young artists and a workshop for children.
