Bluegrass on the Walls, Derry city, 6-7 Aug. 2016

Many thanks to Frank Galligan for this welcome news:

I'm delighted to be back organising the 'Bluegrass on the Walls' in Derry. Hopefully, next year, if the budget then permits, we'll have the pleasure of the company of more of the great bands who graced the city for many years at the inception and subsequent years of the original festival.

That being said, there's a great lineup who will play on the Walls on Saturday afternoon, 6 August, and in the Foyleside Shopping Centre on the afternoon of Sunday 7 August. The bands are:

Tennessee Hennessees (Armagh)
Cool Hand String Band (Omagh)
Cup O' Joe (Armagh)
Erdini (Donegal)
The Swilly Blue Boys (Donegal) (Des Crerand, leader)

BIB editor's note: Frank, the original organiser of 'Bluegrass on the Walls', is - among his many other talents and interests - the doyen of bluegrass MCs in this island.
