Headline and Local Musicians Announced

The Performer Selection Committee is pleased to be able to announce the Headline and Local musicians that have been selected for 2017 and details are available in the Performers section.

We are really excited to present a number of new bands this year, including Barrule from the Isle of Mann, the High KIngs and Breaking Trad, although festival-goers will no doubt recognize many of the players in the latter. We are also please to bring back the very popular We Banjo 3 as well as Scotlands acclaimed Brian McNeill; Irelands top harpist Máire Ní Chathasaigh; and our token Englishman Chris Newman. The Elders, Brock McGuire and Town Pants complete the lineup.
