After a long enforced hiatus, Ireland in Musica returns on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd July, celebrating the founding of the city by the Irish monk Columbanus Bobio, bringing Celtic music to the capital of the Trebia Valley for over twenty years. The festival will be profoundly renewed in content offering music, beer and food. During the two days of the festival, different bands will take turns on the stage set up in Piazza San Colombano, each with a different vision of Irish music.

In 2010, they decided to self-produce their first studio album called “Festa Mobile”: 2000 copies sold in 3 years, thousands of views on YouTube, increased audience at their concerts. Their visibility in the Italian region has increased significantly, thanks to live performances by artists such as Inti Illimani, Edoardo Benetto, Modena City Ramblers, Carlos Nunez, Folkstone, Dubiosa Collective, Kocani Orkastar and many more. 15 years of activity, 5 albums, more than 1000 concerts, performances at the best European festivals with national and international artists, Foccamisseria is one of the most popular and well-known Italian folk / rock / celtic realities!
