The Trad Fest at the end of the week, this year is dedicated to the late Felix Dolan, a longtime member of the CIAW teaching and performing faculty and a true icon in the music tradition. Sadly Felix died just before Arts Week last year. The Trad Fest is a feast for all who love the traditional music, songs and dances of Ireland.  It will host a wealth of talent from masters in these traditions from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean,  most of whom had the pleasure of knowing and performing with Felix  and who have spent the week in our workshops and on our stages. It is a treasure to behold for all who cannot make it for the whole week You will get a taste of what the week offers in a day, with seven complete concerts onstage in  the Concert Pavillion,  starting at noon  with an opening prayer and dedication to Felix  by Monsignor Coen. You will have the opportunity to dance  or to enjoy the dancers as they take to the floor in a ceili mor in the Dance Pavilion  from 3.00pm to 6.00pm. This dance is preceded by a performance given by the Sean O’Riada Comhaltas Branch of Albany N.Y. from 2.00pm to 3.00pm.
