Winter Music Weekend extends to Bunratty Folk Park for 2012

Thanks to Brendan Walsh and his team for news of the 13th Shannonside Winter Music Weekend, to be presented by the Sixmilebridge Folk Club in Co. Clare three months from now.

The Weekend has been for many years the essential New Year livener-up for acoustic music fans, with high-calibre guest artists (e.g. Special Consensus (USA) in 2011) heading eclectic programmes of music, dance, and poetry. The 2012 Weekend will comprise a total of seventy events in fifteen venues in and around Sixmilebridge, including the fine setting of the Bunratty Folk Park.

Bluegrass- and old-time-related bands scheduled to play at the 2012 Weekend include I Draw Slow and Red Cloud Bluegrass, featuring outstanding banjo-player Bill Forster. Full details are on the Weekend's website.
