They are already gearing up for the fourth South East Music Festival down in Wexford. This year’s event will be held on July 28 at the Bannow-Rathangan Show Grounds at Killag and will feature six hours of music from 1-7pm.

Stretching back to the showband era, there has long been a great fondness for music around Wexford and all the top bands of former times played the various dancehalls and marquees around the county, especially in the showband days of the 1960s and the country music boom of the 1970s.
