Mick says (in what may be the understatement of the year): 'it was a large undertaking to put the festival in place in just three weeks; lots we would have done had to be put on the back burner due to time constraints.' He and his team deserve all credit for presenting the first live bluegrass festival in Ireland since the pandemic struck this country early last year.
