WhistleBlast Quartet Family Festival is curated by the WhistleBlast Quartet and features guest pianist Finghin Collins. Enjoy free workshops, entertainment and music recitals, and Ghostly Gastronomics for all ages!

WhistleBlast Quartet Family Festival is a fantastic new festival arriving in Belmullet during Halloween week and is full of events for both adults and children! WhistleBlast will entertain all the family with fun filled performances (including one afloat!); and free interactive workshops for all ages such as Day of the Dead, Meet the Saxophones, and Music Slide Show. World-class pianist Finghin Collins will perform in Belmullet's fabulous theatre Áras Inis Gluaire for serious classical listeners and also host a public masterclass which aspiring pianists can apply for now. Great local traditional musicians Kieran Munnelly and Redmond Connolly will perform with their groups. Children from Belmullet National School will perform a short feature in the Magical Music Mix Concert for all ages to enjoy. Other events include an Open Mic Night; Dastardly Dessert Making for children with Margaret Lynch, Chocolatier and Director of famous Dublin based Couverture Desserts; and a Ghostly Gastronomics dinner for the adults with some strange spot lit performances at the sound of the gong. WhistleBlast will be performing throughout the festival and with all guest musicians for a pre-Halloween break full of great music and entertainment accompanied by brilliant hospitality in this beautiful and wonderfully wild part of Ireland.
