Westport Folk & Bluegrass Festival coming to Dublin, 19 June 2011

Electric Cave Production of Westport, Co. Mayo, reports:

Dublin will play host to the third largest county in Ireland on Sunday 19 June, as the Mayo Alive Festival comes to the capital.

The free event is to showcase Mayo's culture, music, food, and natural beauty and will take place at six locations across Dublin city centre, with over 25,000 people expected to attend.

As part of the event, Westport Folk & Bluegrass Festival will attend the Smock Alley outdoor stage.

Uri Kohen, festival producer, will be joined on stage by Tim Rogers and the Clew Bay Critters (left); the Westport crew will present the programme of events; we'll have tickets on sale and - most important - an hour of good bluegrass music.

The band is one of three acts that will play on this year's main stage. It is a great chance to meet and greet the festival team and to enjoy great music. The band will take to the stage at 1.30 p.m., and the team will be around for a good part of the day.

A map of the stage location is on the site. Looking forward to seeing you all!
