News from Westport: 2012 festival lineup taking shape

Electric Cave Production reports from Westport, Co. Mayo:

The blue paint on Westport's grass is still wet and few big events on the Irish bluegrass calendar are still to take place in 2011, but in Westport Uri and his team are charging full steam ahead with preparations for the 2012 Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival.

The dates for the festival next year are 29-30 June and 1 July. The headline act next year will be the wonderful Thunderbridge Bluegrass Boys {above] from the UK, and a taste of what they have to offer can be seen here.

They will be joined on stage by the superb Molly Hicks. Other names that will make an appearance in the festival are Tony O'Brien of Woodbine and Sean McKerr.

The lineup is already starting to shape up, but we have plenty more surprises up our sleeves that will be revealed over the next few months. Meanwhile we will continue to promote great folk & bluegrass music in Westport. See you all soon!
