Séamus Ennis Arts Centre - into 2016 with a bang / And a BIB competition!

The Séamus Ennis Arts Centre at Naul, Co. Dublin, announces the Centre's new programme for the year as far as the end of April, which can be read here. The Centre has been a good friend to bluegrass and related music in the Dublin region, and its latest e-newsletter begins:

Following on from the success of last year, everyone at the Séamus Ennis Arts Centre is really excited at what we have in store for you in 2016. [...] The year kicks off with some fantastic bluegrass tunes from Jeff Scroggins & Colorado [Fri. 29 Jan.], followed by the amazing Gordie Tentrees with Jaxon Haldane [Sat. 30 Jan.]. We are delighted to continue to showcase the very best of North American folk, bluegrass and country music and this season sees the return of Woody Pines [Sat. 12 Mar.] in what will be an amazing sell-out gig.

Read the whole e-newsletter here.
