A weekend of top quality Bluegrass, American Roots and Nashville influenced musical events, centred in the picturesque village of Dunfanaghy, against the backdrop of the magnificent Muckish Mountain, right on the Wild Atlantic Way.
This year's festival, BAND 2019 - The Year of the Guitar, will feature music by some of the best Bluegrass and Nashville influenced musicians from Ireland, Britain, Canada and Italy as well as ‘A’ List musicians from Nashville itself!
Already confirmed for this year's line-up are world class guitarists Porter McClister (Nashville), Shawn Jones (California), Stephen Inglis (Hawaii), Brian Willoughby and Cathryn Craig (Nashville) and Paolo Pianezza (Italy), hence BAND 2019 will be The Year of the Guitar! The festival will also include some of the best Bluegrass and Nashville musicians from Donegal and the rest of Ireland.
The popular village of Dunfanaghy, is already well established as a great destination for music lovers and BAND 2019 will kick start the summer season. The festival involves the whole community of Dunfanaghy and the surrounding area, with events hosted in churches, coffee-shops, restaurants, hotels and pubs.
While the musicians are having a rest, there are beaches to be walked on, a golf course to play, surf to be surfed, horses to be trekked, mountains to be climbed and headlands to be rambled - so the perfect weekend for everyone!
