Six Irish Artists at Folk Alliance International 2024

Six Irish Artists will travel to Kansas City, Missouri shortly to participate as Official Showcase Artists at Folk Alliance International which takes place from 21 – 25 February 2024.

The artists, who are supported by Culture Ireland, will perform for an audience of music industry professionals from across the USA, Canada and beyond.
