*Féile Séamus Creagh (*FAY-la SHAY-mus Cray), now in its 9th year, is an annual festival of Traditional Music, Song and Dance from Newfoundland and Ireland. It is named in memory of the late Irish fiddle master Séamus Creagh, who lived in Newfoundland for a number of years from the late 1980s, and whose musical influence helped to shape the traditional music style of a whole generation of Newfoundland musicians. The five day festival features visiting Irish, as well as local Newfoundland performers, and highlights the close musical relationships between the two places.
