Painting Westport's grass blue

Westport's 5th Folk and Bluegrass Festival is now truly on its way!

Last Saturday (4.6.2011) the festival launch party took place in Geraghty's bar - the home of music in Westport. The festival was officially launched by Tereasa McGuire, the cathaoirleach of the town council.

Music was provided by the specially formed group dubbed 'The Rocky Tops' (above), which included Hubie and Sarah MacEvilly, Tim Rogers, and Johnny Fadgin.

Uri Kohen, the festival producer, presented Tereasa with the first two tickets for the festival (photo, right), and - as a politician with a good sense of humour - she said it was the easiest number 1 & 2 she ever received.

A great night was had by all, and giving a good indication of what is in store for the festival at the end of the month. See you in Westport!
