September 18th-20th 2020

Countdown is now on!








.. a long time ago in a seaside medieval village far far away, groups of musicians got together on a weekend in September to play the blues for the craic.

The craic was so mighty they decided to repeat the event the following year, and so the tradition began .. and now it has grown over the years to become one of Ireland’s best-kept blues festival secrets!

One weekend every September the village of Cobh comes alive with the sound of guitars and bands as some of the best of the blues visit from throughout Ireland and across the world ..
