8th Balla Bluegrass Festival, 28-31 Oct. 2016 - full lineup!

Thanks to the organising team of the Balla Bluegrass Festival for this announcement:

It has become a tradition that the Balla Bluegrass Festival is the last big event of the year for our 'community' to celebrate our love to bluegrass music. The 8th Balla Bluegrass Festival will take place on 28-31 October (bank holiday weekend) in Balla, Co. Mayo.

As every year, there will be two gigs each night: one in Mannion's pub and one in The Olde Woods pub. They will be staggered in time so that music fans will be able to enjoy both of the acts. There will be a total of six different acts over the weekend and, as always, some spontaneous sessions. This year's acts are:

Barry & Holly Tashian & the E-5 Band (USA; photo above)
Demolition String Band (USA)
The Raines (Ruth Dillon & Juliana Erkkonen of the Molly Hicks)
The Rockytop String Band
Colonel Bullshot Rides Again

The details of the breakdown of the gigs to come soon, and all news and updates will be available on the festival's Facebook page.

Photos of all acts in the lineup can be seen in the Timeline photos section of the Facebook.
