Thunderbridge Bluegrass Boys (UK) for Westport 2012

The popular Thunderbridge Bluegrass Boys (UK; above) will be the headline act at next year's Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival.

The sixth Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival will be held on 29-30 June and 1 July 2012 in the attractive town of Westport, Co. Mayo, in the west of Ireland. Festival organiser Uri Kohen reports that preparations for next year's event are well advanced. A video of the Thunderbridge Bluegrass Boys can be seen here. Also on the programme will be the Galway-based Molly Hicks band and other Irish bluegrass performers.

More will be revealed over the next few months. Previous festivals at Westport have featured leading acts from elsewhere in Europe, such as 4 Wheel Drive and the Blue Grass Boogiemen. Bands interested in taking part should contact Uri by e-mail.
