Dutch bands and Irish festivals

Two of the leading bluegrass bands from the Netherlands will be playing next summer at bluegrass festivals in Ireland, where they have both made many appearances and become firm favourites over the last ten years.

The Blue Grass Boogiemen will be topping the bill at the third Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival, to be held in Westport, Co. Mayo, on 26-28 June 2009. Two weeks later 4 Wheel Drive will be playing at the Athy Bluegrass Festival, on the other side of the country in Athy, Co. Kildare, on 9-12 July.
