Westport Folk & Bluegrass Festival
29th Jun 2012 - 1st Jul 2012
Over the last weekend in June, national and international folk and bluegrass acts will be playing loads of free gigs in venues throughout Westport, Co Mayo. The bustling seaside town will be hopping to the sound of banjos and fiddles, hooting to Appalachian harmonies and swaying to soulful folk songs, as the local bars and hotels give themselves over once again to the Westport Folk & Bluegrass Festival.
This year will feature over ten acts from different parts of the world, performing in eight different venues around the town.
As the event is all about the music and fun, all the gigs are FREE, except for the main Saturday-night show (June 30), which will feature The Higglers, The Molly Hicks and headliners The Thunderbridge Bluegrass Boys.
