Harvest Moon Festival – 2014

5th & 6th September

The Harvest Moon Music Festival is all about great music! Staying true to its core, this year’s line-up promises a wonderful weekend of fabulous music, with new comers, established performers and some of our own West Cork favourites.


The Festival opens with a performance of the incredible local singer/songwriter; Anna Leah Pearl (Hackett’s Friday 5th 5-7pm) and rocks on through the weekend with music in the “Harvest Venues” – O’Regan’s, The Corner House, The Black Sheep, Casa Diego and Grove House.  Holding dear to the premise of being a festival for everyone, there is music to suit every taste; contemporary folk, trad, rock, acoustic Latin, folk, blues, salsa, disco, gypsy swing to name but a few and not to mention a very cool bunch of DJs spinning funk, disco, soul, deep house and dance through-out the weekend.


A decidedly tasty bonus to this year’s festival are the two superb food events being organised in collaboration with the Taste of West Cork Food Festival at Grove House on the Colla Road. Friday Evening plays host to a ‘tasting and music’ event with music by the super talented duo Colin Vearncombe and Maurice Seezer. This is the only ticketed event, for bookings call 028-28067.

Saturday afternoon boasts an outdoor event for the whole family with Dublin-based band, Saint John the Gambler, providing some gypsy swing style of refreshment against the backdrop of a mini food market where local producers will be offering yummy things to eat and buy.

The Harvest Moon Festival is very proud of their policy of free and open admission to all music acts through-out the weekend!
