Full lineup for 24th Omagh Festival (4-6 Sept. 2015)

Thanks to Wendy Connolly and 'Bluegrass in Ireland' for the news that the 24th Appalachian and Bluegrass Music Festival at the Ulster American Folk Park, Omagh, Co. Tyrone, has announced the lineup and programme for this year's event (4-6 Sept. 2015).

Headliners are the Claire Lynch Band (USA) - this opportunity to see them should not be missed, as earlier this year Claire announced her intention of cutting back on touring. Other visiting bands include the Demolition String Band (USA), Viper Central (CAN), the CC Smugglers (GB), and the very hot Bill Faster band from Slovakia (photo below).

Bands from this island include KingBlue, Geordie McAdam & Friends, Wookalily, the Broken String Band, Northern Exposure, and Tom Sweeney, 'Songs for all the family' (all from Northern Ireland),  and the Niall Toner Band, Prison Love,  and the Watery Hill Boys (all from south of the border). Also performing are the Bluegrass Festival Choir.

Most bands will be playing on all three days; details of who's on on which day are on the Folk Park website. A full weekend pass is £35.00, and can now be booked online.
