Good times at Ballygally

We're delighted to learn that the Cairncastle Ulster Scots Folk Festival Bluegrass Evening last night (28 July) at the Halfway House Hotel, Ballygally, near Larne, Co. Antrim, appears to have been a great success for all concerned. The bands taking part were the Bluestack Mountain Boys (aka Dublin Bluegrass Collective), the Watery Hill Boys from Drogheda, and east Ulster's own Down and Out Bluegrass Band. For one of the most positive reports we've seen on a bluegrass event by a participating band, see this account on the Dublin Bluegrass Collective Facebook; from another source, we learn that it was a standing-room-only night.
