Westport 2016 - now on YouTube!

Those who were at the 10th Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival (10-12 June) and those who weren't so fortunate will alike be glad of Uri Kohen's news that videos from this year's festival are now being uploaded, almost on a daily basis, to the Festival's YouTube Channel. Credit for the filming goes to Ger Kenny of Pervege Free Films, who has documented all the events in the festival in the last ten years.

As of this date and time, nineteen videos from this year's event have been uploaded, including footage from evening concerts, the Sunday gospel hour, afternoon shows, jams and sessions, and one from Pine Marten's set at the official launch party.*

The channel also holds a seven-minute video, shot in 2009 at the third Westport festival and serving as an introduction to the event and its organisers; together with footage shot at all the festivals from 2007.

*In the video showing Sean McKerr, Tim Hawkins, Cathal Cusack, and your editor, the tune being played is 'Citigo'.
