Omagh 2016: Early Bird discounts - and JAMMING

Our post of Monday last about this year's Bluegrass Music Festival (2-4 Sept.) at the Ulster American Folk Park, Omagh, Co. Tyrone, omitted two quite important points made in the festival flyer:
  • If you book tickets online before 31 July, you can receive a 20% Early Bird discount; and
  • there will be provision for jamming outside the General Store!
We're delighted that the two headline acts of this year's Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival will be returning to Ireland for major events later this year - the Foghorn Stringband (USA) at Dunmore East, and Red Wine (I) at Omagh.

Red Wine's fine banjo-player, Silvio Ferretti (left) sings harmony on most of the band's vocal numbers. Hearing his part in their 'Mama Mia medley' has led to comments that more lead singing from Silvio would enrich the band's texture. The BIB - while fully appreciating the magnificent lead vocals of Martino Coppo - cordially agrees.
