Bluegrass action in east Ulster, 24-6 June 2011

Thanks to Dangem Quality Instruments of Craigavon, Co. Armagh, for this news of a weekend of bluegrass activity in east Ulster:

Forget Cutting the Grass
Painting the fence
Taking the Goldfish for a walk -

Total Bluegrass

Friday 24 June

The Down and Out Bluegrass Band [photo above] will be playing in McHugh's, Custom House Square, from 4.00 to 7.00 p.m. on Friday 24 June as part of the Open House Festival. A few pints after work on a Friday and a chance to enjoy some old-time bluegrass music for free - is there a better way to start your weekend?

McHugh's, Custom House, 9-31 Queen's Square, Belfast BT1 3FG

Saturday 25 June
The Dangem Banjo Group will meet for the last time before the summer break. Running from 9.30 a.m. to 12.00 p.m. at the Lagan Valley Island, the Island, Lisburn, Co. Antrim BT27 4RL; 028 9250 9292

Sunday 26 June
Also, Belfast Bluegrass will be hosting an open bluegrass session at McHugh's (see address above) on Sunday 26 June from 2.00 to 5.00 p.m. Just like the monthly session at the Errigle, this is open to everyone and free of charge. So grab your guitar, bring your banjo, find that fiddle (not to mention the rest of the instruments), come on down and join in!
