Bumper 2016 for sold-out McKeefry

Bumper 2016 for sold-out McKeefry

Musical couple enjoy string of festival successes

After 20 years experience in organising Irish music festivals, concerts and tours of Ireland husband and wife duo James and Tina McKeefry are looking ahead to an exciting 2016.

Their three night March event in Weston Super Mare has a strong line-up with country favourites Declan Nerney, Shawn Cuddy, and Curtis Magee headlining among others.


After enjoying their good friend Bill Delaney’s Southport I&B Records Festival and after numerous requests from listeners for a Midlands Irish Music Festival James and Tina presented their first festival in 1996 near Nottingham.

In 2006 it was apparent that a much larger venue was needed and after visiting numerous Holiday Villages all over the British Isles James and Tina visited Sand Bay Holiday Village and knew immediately that this was to be the new home of the Mc Keefry Irish Music Festivals.

Their guests obviously agreed and the March Festival sold out in six weeks with a second festival organised for the following September and again this Festival was a success.

Each Mc Keefry Irish Music Festival gives individual attention to every guest with James and Tina personally handling the bookings.

They ensure each venue is friendly for wheel chair users and all venues offer adequate catering and leisure facilities.
