The 17th Guinness Dunmore East International Bluegrass Festival will feature some well known bluegrass names, but the stages will be heaving to the strains of festival veterans, Knotty Pine, Molly Hicks, Little Ass Birds, and Bending the Strings amongst others.
Other bands on stage include Desert Aces, Dunmore Festival veterans.
Having made a big impression at last years Electric Picnic, Galway band Mikey and the Scallywags are new to the Dunmore bluegrass scene.
Well Enough Alone is a Dublin based four piece bluegrass band. Known for the energy and rawness they bring to traditional and contemporary bluegrass, Well Enough Alone delivers a mix of original songs to classics to hot instrumentals.
Another much anticipated addition to the line-up is Hanway & Murray.
