Shannonside Winter Music Festival: report and photos

Thanks to Des Butler for this report on the 17th Shannonside Winter Music Festival (21-25 Jan.), and for the photos. Des writes:

No doubt you enjoyed Jeff Scroggins & Colorado as much as I did; what a performance, from their impromptu session at lunchtime in the Bunratty Castle Hotel, where I actually got to meet them, through their performance at the Creamery Bar on Saturday night, their concert in Durty Nelly's on Sunday afternoon, and the jamming session in the Bunratty Castle Hotel on Sunday night, where they were still playing at approximately 2.00 a.m. as I headed up for bed.

I could not get enough of this band.

The entire festival was a musical extravaganza and is a credit to all the organisers. If as a music lover one did not find a genre to one's liking here, one really needs to check one's pulse. Personally I have not come across any festival catering for almost all musical tastes and genres as this one does.
