Festival Details


Friday, 23 October 2015 to Thursday, 12 November 2015



The Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough will be alive with the sound of music from October 23 until November 12, as the countdown starts to the seventh year of the annual 4 Corners Music festival.

MADD MUSIC will launch the festival on October 13 in the Conservatory Gallery, Antrim Castle Gardens at 7pm with an exhibition of photographs celebrating the community organisation's work. The exhibition will continue until November 8.

Festival highlights include Belfast blues legend Ronnie Greer at the Courtyard Theatre, folk singer Eleanor McEvoy and a tea dance with a difference with the sensational Swingabella at the Old Courthouse, Antrim and successful recording artist Barbara Dickson at Theatre at the Mill.

Folk singers and storytellers, the Armagh Rhymers and the MADD MUSIC crew will be out and about performing and delivering music workshops right into the heart of the community! From Toome to Jordanstown, Newtownabbey to Crumlin and everywhere in between they’ll be stopping off near you!

Other events taking place over the two weeks include a Bluesy lunch with Cold Porter, ‘Twenty Feet from Stardom’ film screening and a fantastic cabaret evening with Irish singer Derby Browne all taking place at the Old Courthouse, Antrim.

Guitar music lovers should make sure and come along to welcome festival favorite, Robin James Hurt, back to the Eyre Studio at Antrim Castle Gardens. He will be joined by local guitarists Colin Reid and Gary Lutton, who recently won the Sky Arts Guitar Star competition.
