20th Omagh Festival: the first publicity

National Museums of Northern Ireland has just allowed the first publicity to be sent through the post for the 20th Appalachian & Bluegrass Music Festival, which will be held on 2-4 September 2011 at the Ulster American Folk Park, Omagh, Co. Tyrone.

The leaflet confirms that Dailey & Vincent (above) - perhaps the hottest act in bluegrass at present - will be heading the bill. Also marking this milestone in the Festival's history, established favourites with Omagh audiences will be there, such as the Malpass Brothers (USA) and Sunny Side (CZ) - and, we have reason to believe, Red Wine (I) as well.

We look forward with interest to the release of news on the rest of the programme. NMNI has not yet put anything on what is supposed to be the Festival web page.
