US old-time musicians at Baltimore Fiddle Fair, Ireland

The organisers of the Baltimore Fiddle Fair, held annually in Baltimore, Co. Cork, Ireland, have announced some of the main artists taking part in this year's event (5-8 May 2011).

In addition to fiddlers and their music from Ireland, Scotland, and the Shetland Islands, American old-time music will be strongly represented by the Foghorn Trio and Stephanie Coleman with Cleek Schrey.

The organisers expect to confirm more of the programme in the near future. Fiddle enthusiasts are advised to keep an eye on the Fiddle Fair website.
