And, as ever, organisers have put together an eclectic mix of national and international headline artists to play at the famed White Horse.

The weekend events include free music events, traditional Irish music sessions, workshops and an expanded series of community events.

Cathy Davey: the Dublin signer-songwriter will perform at the White Horse on Thursday, January 24.

For this very special edition of the festival, a number of previous headliners will make return appearances including Tim O’Brien, Donal Lunny and The Voice Squad. There will also be some top class artists on the Ballincollig stage for the first time, including Jerry Douglas of the famed Alison Krauss and Union Station.

Retro country-soul outfit The Delines get proceedings underway on Wednesday, January 23. Hailing from Portland, Oregon, The Delines features vocalist Amy Boone and acclaimed novelist and songwriter, Willy Vlautin (Lean on Pete).

Thursday will see Dublin singer-songwriter Cathy Davey take to The White Horse stage. 

On the same night, White Horse Guitar Club perform at The Cork Opera House for what promises to be a sell-out show with some very special guests.

Saturday night’s concert is set to be a truly special one with 14 time Grammy award-winning Dobro player Jerry Douglas performing upstairs with support from Cork’s own Greenshine. 

Grammy award-winning West Virginian Tim O'Brien will close proceedings on Sunday, January 27 with Jan Fabricius, delivering their unique style of bluegrass music. 

"We’re really looking forward to what will be our 10th Ballincollig Winter Music Festival,” said festival organiser Joe Carey.
