Music Programme 2019

A transatlantic musical match, combining Irish traditional music with American folk music from the Appalachians, The Unwanted trio is Irish singer Cathy Jordan from Dervish (also on the Tønder Festival poster this year), Irish Séamus O’Dowd, (a former Dervish member) on guitar, violin, mouth organ; and American Rick Epping, concertina, banjo and more. Rick Epping has lived in both USA and Ireland, and masters both American and Irish folk music. The Unwanted make a smooth blend of the different but related musical traditions, tracing the migrations of music and folk from the Old World to the New – and back. Their only Danish festival appearance in 2019.
