Athy bluegrass calendar for 2011

Something for the Christmas stocking of every bluegrass enthusiast in Ireland and many outside as well - the Athy Bluegrass Music Association (ABMA) has produced a good-looking bluegrass calendar for 2011, with many photos in full colour of bands from Ireland, the USA, and the Continent of Europe who have appeared at the Athy Bluegrass Festival in Co. Kildare since the event began in 1991 - the first bluegrass festival to be held in Ireland.

As well as being a unique document of the Athy festival up to the present, the calendar includes a list of other bluegrass festivals in Ireland with their 2011 dates.

Copies of the calendar will be available from next Wednesday (10 November 2010) at €10 each, with the proceeds going to support the 21st Athy festival (7-10 July 2011). To purchase a copy, contact the festival organiser, Tony O'Brien, by phone/text (+353 85 1656685) or e-mail.
