Mills Inn Hotel Bluegrass Festival, 22-23 July 2011

Thanks to Mary Moynihan of the Mills Inn Hotel, Ballyvourney, west Cork, for the news that the Mills Inn is launching its own Blue Grass Festival, to be held on Friday 22 July and Saturday 23 July.

On Friday night (22 July) the mighty Lee Valley String Band (see photo), Ireland's senior group in bluegrass and old-time music, will be playing from 10.00 p.m. in the Museum Bar, and there is no cover charge.

On Saturday (23 July), from 6.00 to 10.00 p.m. the show will be outdoors, with Noel Shine & Mary Greene performing, an open jamming session, and a barbecue with 'Pig on a Spit'. From 10.00 p.m. the Bluegrass Brothers will be playing in the bar.

The Mills Inn (which won the 2010 Les Routiers Inn of the Year Award) is offering an accommodation package for the weekend: bed, breakfast, and dinner for two at €99 per person. Contact 026 45237 or visit the Inn's website for details. You can also follow the Inn on Facebook.
