Ardee Baroque Festival returns this November with a weekend of events celebrating early music in the historical County Louth town.

As always, a spectacular line-up of international artists will be providing three days of world-class entertainment.

From Friday 19th  to Sunday 21st , Ardee town comes alive with musicians and audiences descending to enjoy a weekend of Bach, Handel, Santiago De Murcia, Boccherini, Vivaldi and Purcell in the beautiful setting of St Mary’s Church in the heart of the town.

On Friday November 19th at 7:30pm, Musici Ireland will open the festival with a programme of Spanish-influenced works. Joined by Eamon Sweeney, they’ll play popular favourites such as Vivaldi’s Guitar Concerto in D and Boccherini’s Guitar Quintet Fandango as well as lesser-known works by Schop and Santiago De Murcia.
