Westport Festival 2011: timetable and the Big Bang at the end!

Uri Kohen, organiser of the Westport Folk & Bluegrass Festival in Westport, Co. Mayo, sends the timetable (left) for this year's event; click on the image for a larger version. Uri also reports:

Since the formation of the festival in 2007, one of the most successful sessions was 'Tim Rogers & Friends' - it is the last official session of the festival and Tim is joined every year by some of the best old-time musicians in the business.

This year Tim will once again join forces with two great musicians: Ben Keogh of the Rough Deal String Band and Lena Ullman of the Higglers. Like the previous years, it will be a great session to finish what is bound to be three great days of folk and bluegrass.

In the picture (below) - Tim, Lena, and Jan [guitar] from 4 Wheel Drive from the session in 2008.

BIB editor's note: Can any reader identify the fiddler in the foreground?
