Photos from Westport 2016

Thanks to Des Butler for these photos taken at the 10th Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival on the weekend just past. Des writes:

It must be said, and I'm sure you will agree, a great weekend of bluegrass music was had by all attendees at the Westport festival. All praise to Uri and his team for providing us with a fantastic lineup of artists at a festival that has grown from strength to strength since its inception.

I've attached a few snapshots of some of the performers; note the First Lady of 5-string banjo playing guitar. Roni borrowed a guitar from one of the folk singers who preceded her on the show and played and sang two songs with the same aplomb as her 5-string playing performance.
