Individual Musicians Wanted!

Hi folks,

First of all a quick word to thank all that came and performed at the Spirit of Folk Awards Semi Finals 2013. The judges are busy deliberating and should have a decision by Friday. In the meantime we are busy putting together our lineup for the main event on the 21st of September and putting the finishing touches to our Spirit of Folk Programme 2013. The festival moves this year from the mian fields of the park to the nooks and crannies of Dunderry's grounds but you can expect all the usual touches of Spirit of Folk including a folky feast!
