21st Annual Crawley Irish Festival – a chat with organiser John Nolan + lead man of The Craicheads


Ahead of the August Bank Holiday weekend and the 21st Annual Crawley Irish Festival, we speak to John Nolan – organiser of this year’s festival. We find out what’s planned, what to expect and how it all started.

We also chat to Mick O’Beirne of Craicheads who will be taking the main stage at the festival. He tells us what they have in store for their setlist and we give him an idea on how he can recruit a new drummer!
