So it’s official: The Greasy Coat Stringband are returning to the Dunmore East Bluegrass Festival this year, which takes place on August 22,23 and 24. We had a great, busy weekend in the picturesque seaside town last year and are delighted to be asked back by Mick Daly and the team organising the festival.
This news is on the back of a great weekend playing around Dublin, at the Mespil Road Irish Village Markets food market on Thursday, then being part of the OK Corral Busking Trail as part of the Dublin Goes Country weekend.
We’re now honing our setlist, to make it vegan-friendly ahead of the upcoming Cornucopia Vegan Summer BBQ Hoedown. There’ll be no Cluck Old Hens cluckin’ in the pot, nor will any Big Eyed Rabbits be getting fried in any pans at this one.
But, yeah, we just wanted to share this great news with you old time fans and hope to see you at Dunmore East this August
