Masters of Tradition is a five-day traditional music festival held each August in the West Cork town of Bantry.
Masters of Tradition Festival features a series of performances, covering the full spectrum of Irish traditional music. The performances take place in Bantry House, one of Ireland's most exquisite historic mansions, and in one of Bantry's other special venues, St Brendan's Church.
The event provides a platform where subtle and sometimes obscure elements of Irish traditional music can be heard. By seeking the heart of the music we find a universal voice that has widespread appeal reaching across many cultural and musical barriers.
