To avoid confusion

Last week the BIB published a post about the Woodbine Bluegrass Jamboree (left), which will be held for the first time on 8-9 July this year to take the place of the venerable Athy Bluegrass Festival (1991-2015). The Jamboree will be hosted by Woodbine, with the Hamilton County Ramblers from Chattanooga, TN, as guests of honour at two evening concerts.

Bluegrass Today published today a feature on the Woodbine Opry (right). To avoid any confusion arising from the similarity of names, the BIB points out that the Opry is held every weekend in Woodbine, GA, with bluegrass and gospel music on Friday nights and old country music on Saturdays, raising funds for the Old Woodbine School.

The Woodbine Opry is just off US Route 17, not very far from the Florida border. The Woodbine Jamboree is just off the N78, not very far from the Laois border. If you're heading for the Jamboree and wish to avoid arriving at the Opry by mistake, take no right turns after leaving the M9.
