Your chance to win a Deering Goodtime 2 banjo - at Omagh

Two weeks ago Dangem Quality Instruments of Craigavon, Co. Armagh, sent us the news that among the many attractions of the coming 20th Appalachian & Bluegrass Music Festival (2-4 Sept. 2011) at Omagh, Co. Tyrone, will be the chance of winning a Goodtime 2 banjo, made in the USA by Deering. Dangem have organised a free draw for the Goodtime 2, and an entry form for the draw is in every copy of the Festival programme booklet.

Since the first news of the draw, the Ulster American Folk Park has issued more information on the Festival. Richard Hurst, visitor services manager at the Park, says:

In the past 20 years we have seen the festival go from strength to strength and in that time we have welcomed over 100,000 visitors and 1,200 musicians. The festival is now well established as one of the most important annual leisure and tourism events in the west of the province. We are thrilled to have Dailey and Vincent, currently the biggest bluegrass band in the world, as headline act for this landmark year. It’s a real coup to have them here as it’s the only venue they will play in the UK or Ireland this year.
