    Inishturk Wild Atlantic Seafest is about celebrating the best the Wild Atlantic has to offer, this includes music! 
     
    A bit about the band on Friday Night: Don't Tell Dad
     
     @donttelldadie play a varied programme of Van Morrison, Norah Jones, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, with jazz/blues/folk classics thrown in for good measure. Between the 3 there's about 10 instruments and vocal harmonies to boot. The perfect accompaniment to our candle lit beach cove lobster pot stage. 
     
    Saturday: 
     
    Cúla Búla - The trad rockers who mangle dancers with their progressive fusion of styles, are heading out across the wild Atlantic sea, to place their flag and pitch their tents on Inishturk Island. 
     
    This August these Galweigian gougers, are getting ready to loose anchor and set sail with their fully loaded cannon of turbo-trad. Not firing just once, but twice over the duration of the festival, you can expect to see these lads in full swing both on Saturday and Sunday at different locations on the island.
