This will be an Irish tenor banjo summit with Enda Scahill, WeBanjo3, Mick Moloney, Pauline Conneely, Gerry O'Connor all being present. Noam Pilkeny is no stranger to Irish music and Bruce Molsky will be there too. All in all well worth coming.

If I wasn't getting in free all four days, I'd try my luck at getting tickets1

check out Andreas Transo if you get a chance - not a mandolin player but he's got a heck of a voice and great taste in songs...
