The beautiful seaside town of Dunmore East will host the 24th edition of the Dunmore East International Bluegrass Festival this summer. If you're into bluegrass, honky-tonk, country, rhythm'n'blues or Americana, you'll be in for a real treat.

Across four days there are almost 40 free shows in a range of venues around the town, with big international acts like Portland, Oregon bluegrass legends Whiskey Deaf, and Amanda Anne Platt and the Honeycutters from North Carolina heading up the bill.

Meanwhile on the Friday of the festival, fiddle player Annie Staninec and guitarist John Kael of Whiskey Deaf will offer instrumental workshops where budding musicians can learn some of their quick-picking secrets. (While the concerts are free, these workshops cost €10 and do require prior booking.)

There are also lots of local acts and returning favourites like the Demolition String Band and Mons Wheeler Band, as well as new additions such as Kiss My Grass. The whole town will be bluegrass crazy, so join on in the fun.

Tickets
€0 - €10 (for workshops)
