Another success for 2023

Well what an weekend we all had at the Steel Guitar Festival. It was a brilliant occasion of the best music in the world, friends being re-united and catching up with each other, entertainment second to none and a venue with the most helpful, willing and friendly staff one can find anywhere in the world.

Thanks so much to all attendees for making it happen ......... without you there would be no Festival. A special thanks to all attendees and musicians who travelled from abroad to be there and also to our own Irish musicians and attendees. Thank you all for making the time and taking the effort to be there and to participate in the events of the weekend. Thanks to all who approached us during the two days of the show to express their gratitude and appreciation of the event and the enjoyment they experienced.

A special "thank you" to all my fellow committee members for your support, dedication and enthusiasm to make it such a success
