BRIDGESTONE AWARD "Best in Ireland 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Ireland’s annual festival of “Hot Club” Gypsy Jazz and Swing returns for its 4th year, with the usual packed programme of concerts, music master-classes, jam sessions and more celebrating the legacy of Django Reinhardt.
Our concerts, all held in the intimate setting of Cloughjordan House, bring together some of the world’s finest guitarists… and if you play yourself, you might just be invited onto the stage! In previous years we have welcomed stars such as Frank Vignola, Lollo Meier, Tcha Limberger, Robin Nolan, Paulus Schafer, Tim Kliphuis and Denis Chang… keep checking our website www.cloughtoberfest.com for this years’ full programme announcement in August.
There’s lots more music to enjoy at our free jam sessions all around town where Gypsy Jazz meets local Trad, or you can brush up your guitar or violin skills at a music masterclass with one of our headline performers.
With a great selection of fine Irish foods and craft beers to keep up your strength, this weekend is the perfect autumn pick-you-up to keep you swingin’ right through the winter. Our village setting, right in the heart of Ireland, creates a warm friendly atmosphere where performers and visitors alike really get to know each other. It also means that venues are small, and tickets are very limited… be sure to subscribe to our mailing list and be the first to know when bookings open!
