Thanks to Richard Hurst of the Ulster American Folk Park at Omagh, Co. Tyrone, for this welcome announcement by the Folk Park on its Facebook:

In March, after careful consideration and monitoring of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we made the difficult decision to cancel our #BluegrassOmagh music festival scheduled to take place this weekend.

While we can’t host the festival on our site, we’re marking its 29th year with a special three-day music event online from 22–24 May as a tribute to fans and festival-goers.

Across the weekend, we’ll be bringing the best in bluegrass and old-time music straight to your home from our Facebook page. Tune in to hear performances from international bands and artists including Appalachian Road Show, AJ Lee & Blue Summit, Jonathan Byrd, and Kristy Cox.

Stay tuned for more details throughout the week and buckle up for a Bluegrass Omagh experience like never before.

Virtual concerts will be broadcast on the Park's Facebook each evening from 7.00 p.m. on Friday 22, Saturday 23, and Sunday 24 May.
