Féile John Dwyer, Waterford

September 29th – October 1st

Féile John Dwyer returns to Waterford city again this September with an exciting programme of events including concerts, workshops, recitals and sessions.

Bookings for concerts and workshops can be made through Eventbrite (search for ‘Féile John Dwyer’).

Established in 2012, Féile John Dwyer celebrates the life of the great Cork musician who was a local hero and huge musical influence in the South East for much of his life. John passed away in August 2020, but up until that time, he was a central figure at the festival annually.

The festival is run by a voluntary committee which includes three local musicians Jimmy O’Brien Moran, Edel Fox and Neill Byrne, alongside Viv Keane and Ollie Breslin.
