Galway Arts Festival, 16-29 July 2012

Thanks to Róisín Sullivan of the Galway Arts Festival press office for news of acts on the Festival programme that might interest BIB readers.

The music section of the Festival schedule, all by itself, is both powerful and varied (ranging from Christy Moore to leading string quartets and the West Cork Ukulele Orchestra). Róisín draws special attention to Dave Alvin & the Guilty Ones (USA). Billed as a 'roots rocker' and fronting an amplified band, Alvin is by no means a bluegrass singer; but it's not hard to imagine a bluegrass treatment suiting his material, and a bluegrass fan could find much to enjoy in his music.

Also in the Festival's music programme are Gretchen Peters (USA) and the Henry Girls from Donegal. More details, including venue location maps and online booking facilities, are on the excellent Festival website. For further info, contact Róisín by 'phone +353 (0)91 535956; mobile +353 (0)86 1282543; e-mail. You can also follow the Festival on Facebook and Twitter.
