Urban Roots II in Dublin, 21-4 June

For the second year in succession, the Airfield Arts Centre in Dublin, Ireland, is holding its 'Hoe Down on the Ranch', a midsummer festival of musical Americana, from Thursday 21 June to Sunday 24 June. Seven leading Irish bands will provide bluegrass and related music in a series of concerts, buskers are welcome, and a workshop in handling horses is also offered.

Full details are on the Airfield events schedule and the Bluegrass Ireland Blog. The Airfield estate - the last working farm within the Dublin city area - is an ideal location for the Hoe Down, the only festival of its kind in Dublin.
