    We experienced a wonderful and entertaining evening last night listening to ” A Musical Gathering”. We are from Canada and did not know any of the artists and had no expectations. We were very pleased with our decision to travel to the 35th. Cork Folk Festival and would highly recommend it. We were not disappointed.
