Festival Opening

15 March @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


The 10th annual Kanturk Arts Festival begins with its official opening by much-loved radio personality C103fm’s Patricia Messenger at O’Callaghan’s Showrooms, Earl Street on Thursday, March 15 at 7.30pm.

Kanturk Arts Festival is delighted to that the superb guitar group,The Fandango Duo, will be providing the music on the night kindly supported by Cork County Council.

The duo, consisting of vastly experienced musicians David Keating and Colin McClean, they are famed for bringing fun, energetic and soulful music to the concert platform. Whether it is the relentlessly rhythmic tangos of Astor Piazzolla, the fiery Spanish dances of de Falla, or the fascinating chord combinations and pop sensibilities of the Beatles, Fandango Duo makes every live performance a memorable event. The wonderful setting of the showroom in O’Callaghan’s will make the occasion even more special.

The festival’s Invited Artists Exhibition will also be launched on the night. This will feature works by North Cork artists Mary G Sheehan, Viv Buckley and Deborah O’Keeffe.

The winners of the Schools Art Competition, sponsored by Kanturk Credit Union, will also be presented with their awards on the night.

There will be a cheese and wine reception as part of the official opening and everyone is welcome to attend this free event.
