Welcome to the 4th edition of the Castleknock Music Festival!
Once again, we are delighted to welcome you to our annual music festival where we can share our passion of music by presenting a series of live performances, bringing together leading Irish and International musicians to perform an exclusive selection of classical, jazz and contemporary music, and giving young Irish artists the opportunity to show their talents in public. Our festival events will take place from 17 to 24 of May 2020 in the fabulous venues of Farmleigh, Anglers Rest and St.Brigid’s Church.
Our guest musicians in 2020 are all highly respected in the world of music, including a celebrated internationally acclaimed Irish soprano Celine Byrne; an outstanding clarinettist Julian Milkis, the only student of legendary Benny Goodman; the master of the Russian gypsy violin Oleg Ponomarev; and other renowned musicians: Lynda O’Connor (violin), Ailbhe McDonagh (cello), Julie Maisel (flute), Paul Roe (clarinet), John Hearne (bassoon), Alexia Mankovskaya (vocal), Jose Manuel Gandia (violin/guitar), Vadim Sher (piano), Drazen Derek (guitar), Anna Abramochkina (vocal) and Anna Kiselyova (piano).
We are proud to say that the festival has proved itself to be a great contributor to the community as we keep bringing to the audience of Castleknock performances of the exceptional quality, and we believe that it would be impossible without our supporters. We highly appreciate continuous support from Fingal County Council and Office of Public Works, and want to thank once again our other supporters over the years: Arts Council of Ireland, Embassy of the Russian Federation in Ireland, Cultural and Educational Centre at Russian Orthodox Church in Ireland, MS Solicitors, Children of Lir Gymnastic Club and Harry Kearns Orthodontics.
