Fans of bluegrass, honky-tonk, blues, country, rhythm 'n' roots are in for a musical treat as the Guinness International Bluegrass Festival returns to the South East this summer.

Now in its 19th year, the festival takes place in Dunmore East, the picturesque Co. Waterford seaside village from August 22nd to August 25th and the festival organisers are delighted to announce headline act, Mary Jean Lewis and the Low Men.

The festival will also feature the return of Land's End, who debuted at the festival in 2012. The band, made up of members from Cork, Galway, Dublin, Munich, Liverpool and Canada, perform music strongly embedded in the bluegrass tradition, but each member brings a distinctive sound of their own musical tradition to the musical arrangements of the band.
