We’d like to invite you to come to what we think is the best little festival in the West of Ireland, the Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival, in association with Fáilte Ireland and Destination Westport.For over eleven years, the Festival has featured acts from America, the UK, continental Europe, and of course Ireland – north and south.
Over three days there’ll be a load of gigs, more than one massive session, Masterclasses and Workshops and some local instrument makers will be showcasing their craft to boot.The festival is organised with the help of a small committee of music lovers who take great care to bring the finest musicians playing traditional and contemporary bluegrass, old time and various styles of folk music.
Over three days there will be dozens of gigs, plenty of jam sessions, masterclasses and workshops and a luthier's showcase featuring local instrument makers showcasing their craft. We also provide concerts and workshops specifically for kids.http://westportfolkbluegrass.com/
