West Cork Music was established in 1995 and has grown from a small voluntary organisation to a company which is dedicated to bringing the highest calibre of musical & literary experience to Ireland.
Through our education activities, within and outside our festivals, we set out to foster music appreciation in school children; support and train pre-professional classical and traditional musicians; encourage aspiring adult writers, and cultivate a love of reading and writing in young people.
