Altan's Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh - NTIF 2004
NTIF is recognized around the world as one of the premier locations for true Irish and Celtic performers. Over the past 30 years we have hosted some of the greatest of all Celtic musicians and in 2014 we welcome back some of our true friends as well as extending a warm Texas handshake to some that we have yet to impress.
As always we strive to maintain a balance between the headline musicians, the local and regional musicians, storytellers, dancers, educational workshops and cultural presentations. We trust that there is more than enough variety for everyone.
The national headline performers have been announced and full details are on the National page.
The selection process for our hard working local and regional performers was harder this year than it has even been. We had almost 50 applications from as far away as Austria and the UK. We strive to include as many musicians as we can, but are limited by the number of stages and our financial budget. Local performers are now listed on our featured page.
