Bluegrass and old-time picking weekend in Merseyside (GB), 9-12 Sept. 2021

While we're waiting for the rebirth of the live event scene in Ireland, those who badly need to hear live picking in quantity again may want to consider a weekend in England in early September (if it should be possible then). The FOAOTMAD news blog announces the Junction Old Time and Bluegrass Picking Weekend, scheduled for 9-12 Sept. 2021 and centred on The Junction pub at 102 News Lane, Rainford, St Helens, Merseyside, WA11 7JU. FOAOTMAD say 'between Liverpool and Manchester'; on the map, it's more between Liverpool and Wigan.

The poster (click image to enlarge) gives ample details - there are 100 camping spaces for tents, caravans, or motorhomes, and spaces can be booked in advance. More details of prices and contact data are on the FOATMAD blog (today's date), and you can keep in touch with developments on the Junction's Facebook.
