Sunday 18th November 12.30pm: Irish Trad Session with Criu 

A collection of the best players of traditional Irish music in our very own Wellington. Taken from the darkest corner of a small lamplit pub, these musicians have played away many a long night over frothing pints of dark beer. four musicians locked into a tune, beats slamming into place as 4 feet tap in unison. Four great pillars of Irish music each adding their own colour and energy.
