Film Screenings*** @clifdenartsfest HIGHLIGHTS..we are beyond delighted to announce the screening of #johnhumeinamerica #InTheNameOfPeace ..Exploring the decades-long campaign by Nobel Prize winner John Hume to secure peace in Northern Ireland, Maurice Fitzpatrick reveals how Hume, inspired by Martin Luther King and rising from the riot-torn streets of Northern Ireland, enlisted an army of heavy-weight international heads of state to the cause. Narrated by #LiamNeeson and scored by Bill Whelan (Riverdance), this feature-length documentary includes interviews with Presidents Clinton and Carter, US senators and congressmen, as well as Irish leaders, and British Prime Ministers Tony Blair and John Major.

Highlights #clifdenartsfestival 2018., "David Lyttle represents the best in jazz coming out of Ireland today." - The Independent
"...sophisticated and sharp..." - Rolling Stone

Drummer David Lyttle is Ireland's most celebrated jazz musician of today. He's the island's only MOBO Award nominee and has made appearances in over twenty countries, including recent artist residencies in the U.S., where he traveled from L.A. to New York in a Cadillac, performing for cowboys, bikers and UFO tourists; and China, where he was the British Council's Musician In Residence for five weeks. Growing up in a prominent musical family in Co. Armagh, he's gone on to collaborate with global icons of jazz, including Joe Lovano and Kurt Rosenwinkel, and his latest album was described by Rolling Stone magazine as ‘one of the best listening experiences you're likely to have all year'. At this year's festival he will feature leading Canadian guitarist Lucian Gray, a finalist in the Wes Montgomery Guitar Competition, and British bassist of the moment Conor Chaplin, who appeared in Clifden last year with Dinosaur.

Festival highlights ****Lecture with #MichaelGibbons #archaeologist

Ballynahinch Castle and the O’Flaherty Lords of Connemara, in Folklore, History and Archaeology.”
Sunday 16th

This year marks the 300th anniversary of the death of the Gaelic Lord and scholar Ruaidhri Maic Aodha Ó Flaithbheartaigh and is an opportune time to have a look back at the history of human settlement on the Ballynahinch Castle Estate, which we now know, following recent discoveries is over 7000 years.

The talk’s key focus however, will be on the Lake Island Cashel-Castle and the cast of extraordinary figures associated with it. It began life as an Island Cashel or Stone Crannóg built by the local O’Cadhla Lords, who fought with the O’Briens at the Battle of Clontarf in 1014. It was later transformed in the Lake Castle we see today, by the incoming O’Flaherty Lords, who replaced the O’Cadhla and other leading Connemara families in the 13th Century.
The O’Flahertys had been driven westward by the English de Burgo Lords. In the Late Middle Ages the castle was fought over by various branches of the O’Flahertys before they lost out in the wars of the 17th Century. During the 18th Century the Martins gained control of the estate and transformed the old castle in to a summer palace and later brew house. The O’Flahertys despite losing most of their lands managed to survive in Connemara and on Aran as major players into the 19th Century. .

Announcing.... @shanehennessymusic ...who will play @clifdenartsfest this September.... Shane Hennessy is a virtuoso fingerstyle guitarist and composer from Ireland. His
energetic contemporary guitar playing style and his cinematically vivid compositions tie in
multiple influences from various world and ethnic musics. He has caught the attention of big
names like guitar legend Tommy Emmanuel and super-producer Nile Rodgers (CHIC). His background in Irish traditional music has created a solid base for his genre-defying musical explorations.
Achievements to date include a sold-out solo show in The National Concert Hall in Dublin, a headline billing at the Guitar Festival of Ireland, a feature on the St Patrick’s Day mainstage in Dublin, solo tours of Europe, the US, and Russia, and an appearance at the prestigious Music City Irish Fest in Nashville, Tennessee. He has released two albums of original music to date; ‘Zephyrus’ (2015) and ‘Marrakech’ (2017), and works frequently as a songwriter and as a session musician.

@clifdenartsfest highlights .. #lisahannigan plays will perform at this years festival this #September..
Hannigan first came to light as an angel-voiced, somewhat mysterious figure singing harmonies alongside Damien Rice. They played together for seven years, but it wasn’t until the release of her solo debut Sea Sew in 2008 that the full spectrum of her abilities became apparent. A joyous kaleidoscope of love songs, laments, sea shanties and glockenspiels, with a cover hand-stitched by Lisa herself, the self-released album was a runaway success, nominated for a Choice award in Ireland and a Mercury Music Prize in the UK. The ecstatic reception gave her the confidence to explore deeper, darker emotions. Since arriving on the scene with the release of Sea Sew, Lisa Hannigan has gone from strength to strength touring the world, delivering mesmerising and captivating performances.

In between touring, there was an acting debut in the Oscar-nominated animation Song of the Sea, soundtrack work on Fargo and the Oscar-winning score for Gravity. Recently released At Swim was also shortlisted for the 2017 Irish Choice Music Prize, earning Hannigan her third nomination in a row.
