The 2015 Irish Steel Guitar Festival is over, it is now just a memory and for all who were there, hopefully a pleasant memory. All the work, preparation and rehersal paid off and all agree that the weekend was another great success.
It was good to meet old friends who come to the festival year after year, some to listen and some to play. We also welcomed some new players who performed for the first, but hopefully not the last time. As always the staff band were excellent, featuring some of the top musicians in Ireland.
Our thanks go to all the players, musicians, vocalists, vendors, all who worked at the festival and all who planned and arranged the weekend. Our thanks also go to all who attended the festival, without an audience the weekend would not happen.
A special word of thanks to ur featured players, Joe Wright and Mickey Adams. No doubt you are all familiar with the large amount of great instruction videos on YouTube from Mickey Adams (if not search 'Mickey Adams steel guitar' on YouTube). Not as widely known, but Joe Wright has a series of great instruction videos on the Sierra Steel Guitar website available here.
Arrangements for the 2016 festival will be posted here as information becomes available.
