Music under the Mountains, 19-21 Sept. 2014

Thanks to Paul McEvoy and the Red Hat Acoustic Music Club at Naas, Co. Kildare, for making us aware of this year's Music under the Mountains, which will be held from Friday 19 Sept. to Sunday 21 Sept. in Hollywood, Co. Wicklow, with concerts on all three nights.

Though the primary focus is on Irish traditional music, this year's lineup includes Saturday and Sunday sessions by a Breton ensemble playing music from Brittany. And if you have any doubt that the MUTM team are serious about mountain music, see this photo -
- taken at last year's 'Music on the Mountain' walk to the top of nearby Church Mountain (1,785 ft). The event was so successful that it will be repeated this coming Saturday at noon.

Other features that should appeal to BIB readers: on Sunday at 11.00 a.m. a mandolin workshop will be given by Dublin maestro Paul Kelly (left), who spent some years with the Sackville String Band (NB: the Wikipedia biography of Paul has some errors about Sackville lineup and chronology). And on Sunday night the final concert of this year's MUTM will be given by Donegal's Henry Girls.

A weekend ticket giving admission to all events is €40. Full details are on the Music under the Mountains website and its Facebook page. Music under the Mountains is a non-profit organisation.
