Open mic sessions at Omagh festival, 2-4 Sept. 2011

Thanks to Sharon Loughrin for drawing attention to this announcement on the Ulster American Folk Park Facebook page - open mic sessions will be held from 1.00 p.m. to 6.30 p.m. on each of the three days (2-4 Sept.) of next month's Appalachian & Bluegrass Music Festival:

So many musicians want to play at the Festival each year!

So in an effort to recognise the passion and commitment that is out there, festival lovers who like to play bluegrass and old-time music have the opportunity to perform each day in the unique setting of the Pennsylvania Barn as part of the Bluegrass in the Park sessions. These sessions were a great success with festival followers last year, so any aspiring musicians who want to fill a 30 minute slot in the Barn, entertain the crowds, and maybe impress the festival organisers should jump at the chance to show us what you can do!

There is no fee! Booking in advance is necessary, as only a handful of performance slots are available. First come - first served! For more information telephone 028 8225 6307 or e-mail.

Sharon adds:

Also Charles Pettee and John Currie are taking the kids' camp this year again - good news for our Katie, who looks forward to this every year.
