Omagh Festival: new website

The award-winning Appalachian and Bluegrass Music Festival at the Ulster American Folk Park, Omagh, Co. Tyrone, Northern Ireland, now has its own website, showing the full programme for this year's event (Friday 31 August to Sunday 2 September); location map and details of accommodation in the area; and ticket prices, booking information, and contact data.

Advance booking is essential for the evening concerts on all three days. This can be done through the Park's ticket hotline, +44 (0) 28 822 43292, or online through Ticketmaster. Advance booking is not needed for the afternoon 'Bluegrass in the Park' programme on Saturday and Sunday.

This year's programme includes five USA acts headed by the Steep Canyon Rangers of North Carolina, who won the IBMA Emerging Artist of the Year Award last October. European bands taking part include Sunny Side (CZ), and Red Wine (I), both of whom have already made many friends among Omagh audiences.
