24th International North Wales Bluegrass Festival, 5-8 July 2012

The North Wales Bluegrass Festival at Conwy has long been a favoured destination for Irish bluegrass fans who want a short hop abroad - only forty miles from Holyhead, it's in an idyllic setting (which inspired Christoffer Olsson, lead singer and guitarist of the Swedish G2 Bluegrass Band, to write a song about it), and has few rivals as a showcase for what the high-powered bands on the UK scene can do - not to mention a succession of headline artists from abroad. Top of the bill this year, at the 24th North Wales festival (5-8 July), are New Section, from the Czech Republic.

Conwy and the festival are easily accessible by train from Holyhead, but it's a pity to be in North Wales without seeing other sights; so do consider bringing the car over, and check out the Stena ferry timetable and price lists.
