3rd Bluegrass in Balla, 28-31 Oct. 2011

Thanks to Michael Baynes for a reminder that the 3rd Balla Bluegrass Festival will be held just over a month from now, with five bands playing on the four days of the October bank holiday weekend: 28-31 October 2011. The full lineup for this year's event is:

Fri. 28th: The Molly Hicks (Galway)
Sat. 29th: Bending the Strings (Mullingar)
Sun. 30th: The Mud Dog Boys (Castlebar), 3.00 p.m.
Sun. 30th: Woodbine (Athy), 8.00 p.m.
Mon. 31st: Colonel Bullshot Rides Again (Westport)

As usual the main venue will be Mannion's in Balla, where on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday (for the real Southern flavour) biscuits, gravy, and grits will be served at 11.00 a.m., followed by open jam sessions. Food will be served from Friday evening till Monday evening, and there will be a raffle over the course of the weekend for a fiddle.

If anyone is interested in supporting the weekend or would like to find out about how to play over the weekend, please contact Tom Lyons, Prison Road, Balla, Co. Mayo; 'phone 087 229 6018; e-mail.
