16th Shannonside Winter Music Weekend, 15-19 Jan. 2015

Thanks to Brendan Walsh and his team organising the Shannonside Winter Music Weekend for the news that the 32-page full colour brochure for the 16th 'edition' (as they say on the Continent) of this unique event is now available. It gives photos and brief descriptions of all artists taking part, complete schedules for all events on all days, location maps for venues in Sixmilebridge and Bunratty, Co. Clare, ads and contact data for accommodation and other local services, and a list of Sixmilebridge Folk Club activities during the rest of the year.

As usual, the musical programme ranges across many genres, including classical, flamenco, jazz, gypsy swing, blues, morris dance, set dance and Irish traditional. For the bluegrass enthusiast, the lineup includes Chicago's finest, the Special Consensus, in concert on Sunday, the Niall Toner Band on Saturday, the Down and Out Bluegrass Band (Fri.-Sat.-Sun.), JigJam, Colonel Bullshot Rides Again, Pat & Ricky Kelleher, and Rosie & Gordon - not to mention whoever may turn up at the acoustic roots sessions.

There will be a 'recovery session' on the evening of Mon. 19 Jan. NB: this year, musical events in Bunratty Castle and Folk Park are on Saturday, from noon to 5.00 p.m.
