3rd Clarinbridge Banjo Gathering, 8-10 May 2015

Thanks to Tom Cussen at Clareen Banjos and his fellow organisers for the news that the 3rd Clarinbridge Banjo Gathering will be held at Clarinbridge, Co. Galway, on Friday 8 May-Sunday 10 May 2015, as a weekend of traditional Irish, bluegrass music, sessions, and workshops. The main artists this year are Mick Moloney (who received a Presidential Distinguished Service Award in 2013) and JigJam (who will be on stage at the European World of Bluegrass Festival in the Netherlands the following weekend).

A four-page colour brochure for the weekend can be downloaded as a pdf file here. The programme includes instructional workshops for both tenor and 5-string banjo on Saturday afternoon: the 5-string workshops will be given by Bill Forster in the Parish Hall, both for beginners (2.00-3.00 p.m.; €10) and intermediate players (3.30-5.00 p.m.; €15). Further details are available from the Clareen Banjos website, the Clarinbridge Information Centre (Parish Hall, 11.00 a.m.-4.00 p.m.), or 086 835 1230.
