Belfast Bluegrass is one year old!

Richard Leeman, of Belfast Bluegrass (and the Down and Out Bluegrass Band), reports:

The next Belfast Bluegrass session takes place on Tuesday 6 December upstairs in the Errigle Inn, Ormeau Road, Belfast, starting at around 8.30 p.m. As well as being our last one before Christmas, this session is particularly notable as it is one year since the session started, in December 2010. We have had some great evenings over the last year, as well as a memorable afternoon at the Open House Festival in June, but the most pleasing aspect of the sessions has been the new friendships that have been formed between bluegrass musicians from Belfast and beyond.

The session only exists because of the enthusiastic participation of local musicians, many of whom have been at almost every one over the last year. To all our 'regulars' (they know who they are) I would like to say a very big thank you, and I hope they have enjoyed our monthly get-togethers as much as I have. I also want to say thanks to our hosts, the Errigle Inn, and to everyone who has helped spread the word or promote the session. With your support, I hope that the session can continue for many years to come.
