Bruff Bluegrass Festival 2012:
The organising committee of the Bruff Bluegrass Music Festival in Bruff, Co. Limerick,announce preliminary details of the lineup for this year's festival (5-7 October 2012). Bands at present confirmed to take part are (in alphabetical order):
Bending the Strings (Mullingar)
Blackhill Road Gang
Down and Out Bluegrass Band (Belfast)
Knotty Pine String Band (Omagh)
Red Cloud Bluegrass (Limerick)
Southern Bluegrass Union (Mallow)
Watery Hill Boys (Drogheda)
Other bands are in contact and a final lineup will be confirmed as soon as possible, but it already looks like a pretty heavy-duty turn-out.
A unique feature for this years festival:
a Donkey Derby on the main street! We hope no musicians find themselves entered for the race as a result of unfortunate similarities of appearance...
