Now in its 25th year, the Dunmore East International Bluegrass Festival, is still proving as alluring as ever for top music acts, as some of the industry’s greatest bluegrass and country music acts line up for the free four-day festival in the Co. Waterford village from August 22nd to August 25th.

Fans of bluegrass, honky-tonk, blues, country, Americana and rhythm ‘n’ roots are in for a real musical treat as the picturesque village’s Bluegrass Festival will feature artists from Ireland, the UK and the US playing free gigs throughout the village.

The Dunmore East Bluegrass festival has been running every year since 1995 and after more than two decades the festival is still attracting big-name international bluegrass acts who love performing in Dunmore East.

Top international bluegrass and rockabilly bands to have appeared at the festival over the years include Grammy nominees Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley, Grammy nominee Claire Lynch, The Boxcar Preachers, Mary Jean Lewis and the Lowmen, Jeff and Vida, The Jack Grace Band, Molly Hicks, Amanda Anne Platt & the Honeycutters and Wookalily to name but a few.

The festival has always supported home grown talent too and in the past few years Irish outfits making a noise on the bluegrass and country scenes have taken to the coastal village’s stages to wow the crowds.

All events are free to attend and take place in the pubs and hotels dotted throughout the picturesque village at the Strand Inn, The Ocean, The Spinnaker, Powers Bar and Azzurro.
