DUSTY BANJOS TRAD MUSIC WEEKEND CLEGGAN

JUNE 22-24 2012

 


The 4th annual Dusty Banjos Traditional Music Weekend took place again in Cleggan, on 22 - 24 June. The weather was mixed but mostly dry, and we even saw quite a lot of warmth and sunshine, especially during the 'stayers-on' session on Oliver's deck, on Sunday afternoon.

 

40+ musicians, singers and dancers came and took part, from all over Co Galway and Galway city, with a good few local musicians, singers and dancers as well!  It was good fun.

This weekend represents the well-known Dusty Banjos (now in its 10th year) 'wind-down' for the summer period, which meant that everyone was in great party form, and the music was hot and heavy and looooong!
