The Craic by the Creek festival held recently in Greater Manchester has attracted some of the biggest names in Irish and country music.
Originally slated to take place in 2019, the festival was delayed and then postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and associated travel restrictions.
Once it became clear that the festival could take place this year, ticket sales skyrocketed and they sold out quickly.
Such was the demand for the return to live Irish and country music, it became clear to organizers that the festival was going to be more than just a celebration of live music but also a lockdown release party.
The three-day event saw performers Nathan Carter, All Folk’d Up, Lisa McHugh, Mike McGoldrick and the Joe Keegan Band take to the Big Barn stage.
Elsewhere on the line-up Catherine McKenna, Gareth Nugent, Crossroads and Matt and Donal have performed on the Bethell Stage, giving festival-goers the opportunity to connect with the biggest names in traditional and contemporary Irish music.
Building on the success of the first Craic by the Creek festival, the event has already confirmed its 2022 dates.
Craic by the Creek 2022 will take place July 22-24.
