4 Wheel Drive to return to Ireland for Athy 2012 festival

Multi-award-winning band 4 Wheel Drive (NL/D/B) will top the bill at the 22nd Athy Bluegrass Festival, to be held at Athy, Co. Kildare, from 13 to 15 July 2012.

The Athy festival, founded in 1991, is the longest-running annual bluegrass event in the island of Ireland. Tony O'Brien, director of the festival since 1998, first booked 4 Wheel Drive in 2001, the first of many appearances the band has made in Ireland. More details are on the Bluegrass Ireland Blog.
