Teacht Thar Sáile Folk Club are looking forward to hosting our Fourth Annual Mountain Roots Music Weekend, here in Cahersiveen Co. Kerry. Last year brought even more Roots enthusiasts to Cahersiveen to enjoy the music, atmosphere and lovely scenery in and surrounding the town. Visitors hailed from other parts of the "Kingdom" and country, along with people from the UK, Europe, the States and New Zealand.

Those where just the people that I met! This year we welcome back some of our groups, such as The Dizzy Blues and Two Time Polka and we look forward to welcoming a top class Bluegrass group from the States called High Plains Tradition. We will also be joined by Séan Garvey, Greenshine, The Stargazers, Mick Power, John Nyhan, Hank Wedel along with many more local artists and performers. We will of course have our open session and our youth contribution! We also have included a listening venue with the addition of our "Roots Concert Room". We have successfully hosted two events here during the Winter where Hank Wedel and Pat Horgan entertained an appreciative listening audience. The venue is intimate and relaxed and people can enjoy a drink while being able to listen to the music in this concert style setting, We host Jeff Scroggins and Colorado, from the US on Feb. 25th and Four Star Trio on April 1st. The Roots Weekend itself take place in Cahersiveen on the May Bank Holiday Weekend from Friday April 28th until Monday morning, May 1st 2017. Hope you can help us get it out there. Slán go fóill,
