Wow for Wookalily

Uri Kohen reports from Westport, Co. Mayo:

Last year I got in touch with Adele Ingram-Magee, musician and promoter with One-A-Chord Music Promotions. I was in a search for a bluegrass act from Northern Ireland. She then introduced me to her own band - Wookalily. I booked them to play the 4th Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival. They were superb and a great addition to the festival.

A year has passed, and now Wookalily have a new lineup - a new fantastic sound. Except Tom the bass player, they are an all-woman band, producing a unique sound. Last night (21.5.2011) they played in Westport and kept us all amazed by the quality of their performance. They provide a mix of country, bluegrass, and folk with a personal touch; the show contains plenty of original material alongside classic covers. It was a night to remember and comes highly recommended by me to all music lovers and festival promoters.

News about the 5th Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival in the coming week.
