Feile an Phobail’s Spring traditional festival, Feile An Earraigh, kicked-off last night, but there is still much more to come.

Ten-piece musical phenomenon Penguin Café Orchestra will headline the concert at Clonard Monastery tonight, while the festival marquee in Bank Square presents the first of three nights of concerts with a double bill this evening featuring the David Munnelly Band and The JJKs.

The city centre venue also boasts Scotland’s the Peatbog Faeries, plus folk musicians Gino Lupari, Donal Murphy and Steve Cooney tomorrow night before a double-headliner finale on Sunday with Beoga (pictured) and Lau ( www.FeileBelfast.com ). Meanwhile, the founder member of Fairport Convention, Iain Matthews, has shows at Belfast’s Black Box (Wednesday), Omagh’s Strule Arts Centre (Thursday) and Rathfriland’s Bronte Centre (next Friday). The Belfastfolk Session featuring Maurice Leydon, Jane Cassidy, Angela Delaney and Gerry Cree is on tonight at the Fountain Tavern.
