Beer and bluegrass in summer - beat that combination

Thanks to the organising team of the Beer and Bluegrass Festival, in the sweet sunny south of England, for news of next year's event. It will be held on the weekend 22-23 July 2016 at St Aldhelm's Hall and Gardens, Poole Road, Branksome, Poole, Dorset BH12 1AD. The programme starts at 6.00 p.m. on Friday 22 July and noon on Saturday 23 July, and runs to 11.30 p.m. on both days, with bands from the USA, Europe, and the UK. Home-cooked food and over thirty Real Ales and ciders are also an important feature. The team announce:

We wanted to go back to a time when small festivals were fun, and we have carefully selected a lineup of great musicians who have that down-home vibe and play good-time bluegrass and Americana, all played with verve and a smile. We think you will love it!

On the 2016 lineup are Old Hannah from Sligo (photo below). Interested in following their example? - drop the team an e-mail. The festival is also on Facebook.

Tickets cost £12.00 for Friday (6.00-11.30 p.m.) and £18.00 for Saturday (noon-11.30 p.m.); a Weekendsaver ticket at £25.00 covers both sessions. Bookings can be made through BH Live by 'phone (0844 576 3000) or online, and can also be booked online through We Got Festivals.
