'Down from the Mountain' at Ards Guitar Festival

Thanks to Sharon Loughrin for the news that the 15th Ards Guitar Festival at Newtownards, Co. Down, will feature a 'Down from the Mountain' concert at the Ivy Bar, one of the festival's main venues, as one of its closing events.

The festival, which runs from Thursday 29 September to Sunday 2 October, presents concerts and workshops in many genres of guitar and guitar-related music, with Steve Kaufman (USA) heading the bluegrass element. The 'Down from the Mountain' concert, on Sunday afternoon, is scheduled as

a foot stomping and atmospheric musical recreation of the concert film. Down from the Mountain originally featured live performances by country and traditional music artists who participated in the Grammy-winning soundtrack recording for the Joel and Ethan Coen film, O brother, where art thou?

The cream of local talent will take on the soundtrack classics including 'Down to the river to pray', 'Indian war whoop' & 'Po' Lazarus', to name a few. Artists include Conor Scullion, Emerald Armada, Magee, Mark Braidner Sons of Caliber, Janet Holmes & Colin Henry, Farriers, Finbar, the White Mansions, & Wookalily
