Roni returns! (1)

Thanks to the organising committee of the Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival in Westport, Co. Mayo, for this great news to begin the year:

Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival are honoured and delighted to announce the return of the First Lady of Banjo of the US, Roni Stoneman, for her own headline show at this year's festival [10-12 June 2016].

Roni amazed the crowd in 2013 and was without a doubt one of that festival's highlights. She will play Matt Molloy's yard bar on Sunday 12 June.

Here are two videos of Roni's last performance in Westport at the 7th festival: 'Goin' down the road feelin' bad' and 'Foggy Mountain breakdown'.

In the pictures: 1 (above) Roni; 2 (below) Roni with Uri Kohen (festival producer) and Tumbling Bones, who supported her on stage.

BIB editor's note: More information on Roni and this year's visit will be posted very shortly. The videos mentioned above can also be seen on the Westport Folk & Bluegrass Festival Facebook.
