Advance news of 16th Shannonside Winter Music Weekend, 15-19 Jan. 2015

Thanks to Des Butler, who forwards information from Brendan Walsh of the Sixmilebridge Folk Club in Co. Clare on the forthcoming 16th Shannonside Winter Music Weekend (15-19 Jan. 2015). Des writes:

Almost all music genres are being catered for, from classical to jazz with seventy events in fifteen venues in Bunratty village and Sixmilebridge. The list of bands booked for the bluegrass section is impressive:

Special Consensus (USA) [see photo above]
Niall Toner Band
Cool Hand Dukes (country/ blues)
Boat Band (UK; cajun)
Pat & Ricky Kelleher
Down and Out Bluegrass Band
Chris Dolimore (acoustic blues)
John Nyhan & Friends

A full brochure is due out in early November. All kudos to Brendan Walsh, John Nyhan, and Sixmilebridge Folk Club.

A flyer issued earlier this year lists further acts including orchestral music, a cappella singing, Morris dance, jazz, flamenco, and of course Irish traditional music.
