Wild Atlantic Music Tours takes great pleasure in announcing that Kevin Crawford will lead the April 26 – May 2, 2020 tour. The internationally acclaimed flute & whistle maestro will lead our ‘Wild Atlantic Way Tour’. The virtuoso flute player travels the world as frontman for Ireland’s cutting-edge traditional band, Lúnasa. Kevin has also recorded several solo albums including Carrying The Tune and his most recent, The Drunken Gaugers.
Join Kevin and a host of friends and experience traditional music at its best during an unforgettable trip along the Wild Atlantic Way. Meet some of the region’s best known trad musicians as they join Kevin for dedicated intimate and informal sessions each evening.
The ‘Wild Atlantic Way Tour’ is a 6 night tour around Clare, Leitrim, Sligo and Galway. The first 2 nights will be based in Carrick-On-Shannon which will be a nostalgic trip down memory lane for Kevin. Ten years ago Lúnasa released ‘ The Leitrim Equation’ album after an 18 month residency in Leitrim. Once again, Kevin will meet up, share music and stories with some of the local musicians who made this project a success. Then it’s on to County Clare, the ‘Spiritual Home of Irish Trad Music’ during which we visit Ennis, Doolin , Milltown Malbay and a host of other famous trad locations. Trips to the musical and cultural hotspots of Galway and Sligo will also feature.
Enjoy the spectacular scenery the West Coast Of Ireland has to offer. Visit world famous locations such as The Cliffs of Moher & The Burren. Experience a warm Irish welcome in luxury hotels in Clare & Leitrim. Places are limited to 30 people.

The Wild Atlantic Way is a tourism trail on the West Coast of Ireland. The stunning 2,500km of coastline offers breathtaking scenery, invigorating sea swells, gastronomic gems and a warm welcoming atmosphere. The WAW is a haven for traditional Irish musicians. In every town, village and remote townland dotted along the Western Coast, there is a wealth of traditional Irish music sessions to be enjoyed. These sessions are informal and often impromptu, making the Wild Atlantic Way a little piece of music heaven.
All our tour groups are accompanied by professional Irish musicians. Wild Atlantic Music Tours also organise evening sessions dedicated to the group. These sessions will feature local musicians who will share music and stories in an informal and intimate environment.
